    Default Label Remover v paint work

    Hi guys, I want to remove the little LS badges (by peeling them off due to lack of heatgun/hairdryer).
    I just wondered if anyone had ever used "Ambersil" label remover on their cars and whether it had any adverse effect on the paint work?
    I would of course tcut and polish the area afterwards.

    I used this stuff a few years ago to remove some sticky residue on the plastic headlights of my 306 (from those stick on things for driving in mainland europe), the previous owner had tried just about everything, this Ambersil removed the sticky crap in seconds leaving a clear patch surrounded by little scratches (from the previous owners attempts).
    Never tried label remover on paint though

    I guess if not, I could always try it on some hidden area first!

    I don't know what Ambersil label remover is but AutoGlym Intensive Tar remover works a treat on the badge residue and is safe for the paintwork.

    I used 3M label remover on a car recently and is was fine, though i did use soapy water on the area straight after to be on the safe side.

    I used that label remover on a mates vectra paintwork only a few weeks ago with no problems , just wash off residue after you've done it and re-apply your car polish and your done.

    WD40 is the daddy, it doesn't harm paintwork either.
