    Default De-badge

    Hi all, is it possible at all to de-badge the rear of my Vectra C?

    I'm interested in maybe removing the V E C T R A and the vauxhall emblem... just to be a bit different. Can it be done without leaving any nasty holes or marks?

    Thanks!

    I used a piece of wire for the V E C T R A sign, in behind the lettering and slowly cut behind it, havent tried the vauxhall badge though

    Dental floss would tend not to mark the paint "etc" when removing the letters and badge too.

    hair drier heat them up and use old credit card to lift the edges, or a hot pressure washer makes them bump off

    Is a mark left on the sliver strip or does it really depend on how old your car is ?

    Usually a good polish will remove any marks, but from my own personal experience the use of a hair dryer to soften the glue is the best way.
