    Default De badged the boot and im gutted.

    Just spent nearly an hour de badging the rear of my Vectra only to find that there is a faint outline of the griffin left in the laquer.
    Am i the only person who has encountered this and is there a fix.?
    I have tryed rubbing it with a compound and polished it and it is still faintly there.
    I really dont want to put the old badge back on as it looks so much cleaner without it.

    Yeah. My badge was stuck like **** to a blanket.
    Ended up using tar remover, thiners and a cutting compound.

    Its like the outline of the badge has eaten in to the laquer.
