    Question Debadging this week, any tips?

    Hi all

    I am going to attempt debadging my signum 2.0t this week. The previous owner also stuck a chrom GB badge on the back so it's time to get rid of it and the other badges.

    Any tips, I am going to use dental floss to get behind the badges and I was also thinking of taking off the "elegance" one on the side....what do you reckon?

    the less badges the better me thinks ive always heated the badges up with a hair dryer and they peel off quite easily then i use auto glym tar remover to get rid of any sticky bits and then polish it afterwards

    A credit card style bit of plastic. Hot soapy water, then WD40 to remove the remaining glue.

    Wash the area first.. Means that there is no grit etc in the badge that can scratch when you pull it off.

    Hot soapy water - then hair-dryer - and it will pull off in your hands.

    Heat the badge glue up with a hair dryer, peel the rest of the glue away & polish after... simple job & looks great after

    Just trying to imagine what your neighbours must have thought seeing you holding a hot water bottle on the car...

    Probably thought you'd cracked lol.

    Brillaint replies guys, thank you!

    I am thinking i'll use the girlfriend's hairdryer and go for a combination all of them.

    She will think I am taking my love of Vauxhalls to a new level when she see's me with the hairdryer on the car but what the hell.



    I can not wait to see what it looks like

    Vauxhall badge too??
