    oh no.... what have i done.....!

    Fitted my irmy grill today, then decided to stick the i logo on.....
    put the glue on the back and put the bottle in my mouth while i pushed the logo on.
    for some reason, i bit on the bottle spraying superglue on the paintwork...
    Now its dried white...

    pmsl sorry mate but you have to look on the funny side of it,
    on the other hand try polishing it off, if that fails it will need a cutting solution to get it off

    Firstly, don't panic.
    You could try to prise it of with a sharp blade and a VERY steady hand.
    or T-Cut is another option but would take ages to remove.

    It'll come off some how.

    Are you going to PV2004?

    Why did you put a glue bottle in your gob? good job the nozzle was pointing outwards! :shock:

    1200 or 1500 grit wet and dry, a steady hand and a block. Flat off the glue like you would a dust nib in fresh paint and then cut it. Just don't pull through the lacquer or you will be in deep shit!

    Next time glue the badge on BEFORE fitting it to the car

    PS The super glue is shit. If you waggle the badges they break the glued joints on the badge and come off :shock: I did it the other week when I was tinkering

    That might be a blessing in disguise as well. It may break up a bit easier..

    I think boiling or very hot water budges super glue.

    You know you can get a super glue remover fluid, but don't know what that would do to yor paint tho

    you can buy superglue remover from most DIY shops, try some on your paint first though....should be fine.

    Boiling water also helps.
