    Default Rear Badge removal done and Grille question

    Just removed rear badge last night. have to say it was so much easier than I thought. Didn't even need any polish etc but I guess maybe due to fact car is relatiely new?

    Think i'll remove the other badges now, but all I used was a credit card and some nearly boiling water on a towel. Wet the towel with the water and held it on badge. Once hot, scraped credit card down between badge and boot surface. badge came off pretty much straight away(in one piece too) and just had to remove the excess sticky stuff by the same method, holding hot wet towel on it a while then rubbing off with finger.

    Tanks for the hints and tips on here guys.

    Airbox mod tonight.

    Okay, one thing I would like help with, how do I prepare the front facelift grille for painting? i want it black with just one part left chrome. Is it possible to rub it down somehow and then spray it black? Anyone done it?

    many thanks.

    did you take the big vauxhall badge off the boot? were there any guide holes or is it just stuck on?

    as you can see the badge comes off easily enough in one piece and no holes or marks left behind. Just make sure you don't use something which scrapes the paint. Get the water on the towel as hot as you dare which you hold over badge before removal:-
