    Default Which compound is best?

    Hi peeps, i decided to av ago at debaging the siggy and after i got the chrome letters off i was left with the sticky backin. I gor some Autoglym tar spot remover and this worked a treat but im now left with a ghosting outline of every letter. I tried T-cut but didnt do anything, so I asked a valeter and he said i would have to use a compound to remove the marks. What compound should i use? I dont want to spend hours rubbing down then waxing and sealing just want to get the marks removed. Thanks peeps

    I take it this is on the paint and not the chrome strip? Have you tried a clay bar over it?

    Is it raised up or have you taken the clear coat off with it causing an indent? Do you have a photo?
