    Default Debadging my vec

    Guys,

    Fancy debadging my vectra, looking to take away the vauxhall badge on the rear & the vectra badge on the chrome strip on the boot, also the ls badges on the wings!

    Anyone know if there's any holes under any of them? Or any probs in doing so? Car is silver so paint fade wouldn't be an issue!

    just a wee tip bud,head the badge with a hair dryer before you get your bank card into it,it will soften up the gunk that holds in on and saves any paint damage

    Hair dryer works for me, get it warm enough & the glue residue remains are usually very minimal

    If the glue padding is being stubborn use some nail varnish remover, then rinse.

    I tried all the ways on the How To, heat gun and AG tar and bug remover (for residue) worked best for me. As said, plenty of posts and a good How To.
