    I'd guess it'll need a re-spray after removing. It's gonna take a fair bit of paint what ever method you try I think.

    I heard somewhere nail varnish remover will get it off, but I'm not sure where I heard it. Would expect paint damage.

    I have heard that WD40 is pretty useful in removing all sorts of grott. You won't do any harm in giving it a try,it's pretty amazing stuff.FELIXX.

    Acetone can dull paint, and can react badly with plastics. WD40 is safer.

    I superglued my front griffin badge back on at the top (as it had come loose), but I spilt some superglue on the 'chrome' ring. Nail varnish remover didn't remove it, so I waited for the glue to dry and patiently prised it off with my thumbnail, and polished the area afterwards. Job done.

    Acetone will disolve the glue, but will damage the paint. You could try getting one of those sprays that you can buy for freezing warts as syuper glue becomes very weak and brittle when frozen. The badge should come off easily, hopefully without taking the paint with it.
