    Default newbie debadging

    Hi, newbie here. Got my first vec c last night 2003 52 reg 2.2 sxi saloon. Thought i would try the debadging first so started it today. Managed to get the griffin badge off and the vectra and 2.2 badge off the chrome strip using only a credit card and nothing else. Now stuck with all the sticky stuff left behind. Tried pouring hot water on it but not having much luck. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    I used a razor blade on my chrome strip; as long as you are careful all the sticky backing will come off with no scratches. Bit of Duraglit got rid of the ghosting left behind by the letters. HTH.Welcome to the forum by the way.
