    Default how to remove stuff left over from rear badge removal.

    Evening all.

    Washing the car today and noticed the the rear badge a wee bit loose, so decided to take it off(for a while anyways).

    Gave it a clean down, but left with what looks like plastic or glue stuck to the paintwork.!!

    Any tips on how to get it off safely?

    cheers in advance.

    Heat it up with a hair dryer and use a cloth to roll the glue off then compound and polish up. 10 minute job m8.
