    Default Super Glue on Paintwork!!

    I decided to de-badge the car this morning, the griffin is gone and the drivers side "sxi" badge is gone, however, the passenger side "sxi" badge as been stuck on with superglue or something, i've pulled it off but i've now got rock hard blobs of glue that i can't get rid of... can anyone suggest any methods for removing the glue without damaging the paintwork?

    I got the glue off the griffin and drivers side badge with WD40.. worked a treat, but this stuff.. it's welded on i think!!

    Try getting some superglue remover, most large hardware suppliers should stock it.

    check hardware store for skin release, this will turn the glue mushy so it can be wiped off - whether your paint will come off 2 i dont know

    Ordered some Irmy badges to cover it up... i was looking at it before and it looks weird without any badges there! lol

    I think i'll still need to get rid of some of it though.. i'll try boiling water and tcut, hopefully the irmy badges will help disguise most of it though.

    Cheers lads.
