    Default Got An idea while debadging- photoshop help required!

    While Most of you where sunning it up at PVS. I got the oppotunity to start delabelling the car.

    I got 1.9 CDTI off no problem using dental floss and a hair drier. I had trouble getting the last of the sticky off the chrome strip. Any suggestions please?

    Then set to work on the Vectra badge. Got the letters off no probs that noticed that the sticky look like the colour of the car (Lightning Silver). I took a bit step back and then thought what would the car look like if I rebadged the car or put an Irmy badge on with colour coded letters. Can some one do a photoshop for me on the back end? The Griffin is comming off next!

    Hi m8,

    I've debaged two vectra c's now and found the best way is to pour hot water over the badges first, then removed them gently with a credit card or similar.

    Once thats done I use turtlewax bug and tar remover to remove any glue left.

    Default Debadged but slightly different. Do I finish it?

    Cheers ALD. Stopped on the way home and got the bug remover.

    Started work on the 1.9CDTI Gone in seconds.

    Decided to whip off the Griffin. Dental floss in 2 minutes. Picked off the backing and gently wipled clean with Bug remover.

    Then started on the VECTRA which was alot more stubborn. Got so far before it went dark. However I quite like the half finished result. What do you all think....

    Debadged.....



    Still a subtle clue there:



    Up close:

    I had more trouble with the vectra badge as well, just keep using the bug and tar remover, it will work

    and don't do what I done, read the instructions first lol

    i just sprayed it on and expected it to disapear but you should spray, rub it in, leave for 1min and then buff it (with another cloth)
