  • de-badge question

    hey, at the weekend i de-badged my vxr but where the griffin was in the middle you can still see where it was seems to be a lighter colour my vxr is red by the way i was wondering if this fades with time or will it go after a few polish's?
    thanks

    A few passes with SRP should do it mate. If not a machine polisher

        T Cut it, then wash it. Then it will fade over time

            myns red mate are you going to get rid of the corsa bit aswell? i think it looks good on any colour vxr to be honest and being silver i dont think you will be able to notice where the badges have been as much






            thanks for the advice guys ill give it some more polish at the weekend and see how it goes

              Im thinking of de-badging myself, whatever you do dont t-cut... That has to b one of the worst things that you could use on you'r car.! A few runs over with polish or get a light compound polish, should go with time!

                ok i've just done mine about 2 minutes ago,
                what i did was
                boiled water poured over badge,
                then tried floss but that was **** so used an old bank card which works 10 times better.
                once are badges off there will be a bit of glue left behind which after a bit more hot water will peel off
                intesive tar remover to get rid of the rest of the crap
                i gave it a quick wash
                then polished and waxed.

                theres a bit where the griffin was which is slightly lighter than the rest of the car, but i think a few minutes on the machine polisher will sort that out.

                i'll add pics in the members car section once uploaded

                  I did my arctic with no issues at all, polished and glazed it afterwards and its fine looks spot on.

                        I debaged my breeze which is flame red and couldnt see where the badges had been, however when i took off the bump strips in certain lights you can see where they had been, the paint is slightly lighter underneath the strips.

                        I would never recommend anyone to use TCut, it is not good for your finish, using SRP and a decent wax will do the job much better and instead of stripping layers off you are building up a protection
