    Default De-badge

    This is probably something that every member of this forum already knows.....except me. I want to de-badge my vectra but I am worried about damaging my paintwork, does anyone have any tips?

    You could also use a jug of boiled water, pour it over the letters and get stuck in with the card. But both ways work mate.

    Vehicle : Ford Kuga

    Trim : Titanium

    Engine : 2.0dtci

    Year : 2014

    Mileage : 1200

    Default

    First read the "How To", the way that worked best for me was heat gun (on low) or hairdryer, then a cloth with plenty of Autoglym Tar and Bug remover on it. I tried the hot water, and WD40, that also works, and now I know how to use Clay, Meguiars or any other brand, I can see that would work also. Depends what you find easier.
