    Having seen a few of these now, I still can't say I am keen on the debadged look on the rear. However, you've done a grand job.

    i used fishing wire to get the badges of (slid the line behind the badge then pulled down in a sawing motion)
    once the badge was off, i used hot water on a terry cloth to clean and get the sticky stuff off...then used auto glym paint renovator to remove any marks left behind by the sticky, then finished of with a good polish.
