    I was bored - so i debadged my Mk3....

    Nothing much else to do at the moment, so i decided to lose the badges off the tailgate on my Mk3.


    This is how it did look.....





    So out came the hairdryer and a old credit card, I was then left with this....



    I then got a wet sponge and wiped away the dirt that had accumulated behind the badges. Then I got busy with the Autoglym Intensive Tar Remover. Then out came the polish.


    The finished result is....





    What do you think?

    Only took me about 20 minutes to do it.

    I want to do something with the griffin now. Thinking about getting another badge and rubbing it down and colour coding it to make it blend in. Not sure if that will work?

    Very nice, looks much cleaner now. Cant decide if I should whip the cesaro badge off mine. Think i'll keep it just now. Certainly better than the old std phase 1 badges.

    Found this pic of a VW, which has done something similar to what I was thinking of.....
