    Well took my GSI wheels into be refurbed today. Though great, then parked my car into a porta cabin lol. Only slight scuff and my chips away mate is coming Wednesday.

    Decide to remove the griffin badge from boot and now can't seem to get shot of the very faint shadow it has left.

    I have tried buy and tar remover, t cut, AG polish you name it can't get shot of it.

    Any other ideas folks??

    I have got all the sticky back plastic off and the crud along with it. Now however you can see a slight colour difference which looks like a shadow.

    It might get better with a few washes and some dirt lol.

    I'd be trying machine polishing aswell, so probably same result. Your more than welcome to bring it though and we can try (no charge).
