    Default Debadge procedure

    Ok mates I might debadge the trunk this weekend, I will like to remove the logo in the middle of the trunk, boot as I think you call it, It has a nasty big chrome "Chevrolete" logo wich I dislike.
    After reading some threads about it what I get is that itīs glued to the paint, and to get rid of it you basically heat the thing with a hair dryer or such, and then you take it off right? and to get rid of the residue left you might use lighter fluid or some sort of scratch remover.

    Any other ideas for this simple matter?

    Cheers

    Use your credit card that way you will not damage the paint work,the residue "glue" you can remove with a tar remover[you can this at most auto shops],and polish well afterwards.

    I never heated it up.
    I just used some fishing wire. Slide it over the badge and use it like a saw to cut the double sided sticky tape off. You will have some sticky tape left on the metal work.
    I then used tar and bug remover to soften it up a bit and it peeled right off.

    Looks much better with the bagde off.

    Have used warm water to soften the doublesided stickytape and
    tar remover for cleaning up.

    Well I started to de-badge the back last night, just the letters on the chrome strip and the NHS healthcard worked a treat. Need to go get some Chrome polish today...might take the griffen off, not sure yet

    Thank´s all you mates. I think I´ll go with the hot water better than the hair dryer. And the WD40 sound´s like a great alternative.
    Cheers

    Pour a kettle of boiling hot water over it the wait a few seconds until it is possible to touch badge or trim you are removing.Then it should slowly peel off as the glue will have softened. Then use t-cut or tar remover to take away the excess sticky stuff.
