    Default Griffin de-badge tips

    Hello

    I managed to debadge the rear VECTRA, 1.9CDTi, and both ELITE's with the wife's dental floss.....

    Having a bit of trouble with the large rear Griffin .... floss can't get taut enough and it is large.

    Any helpful hints and tips about removal of the Griffin

    Thanks

    Denzo
