    De-Badging My Astra

    I have debadged my astra and it looks great! but i was just wondering if the Vauxhall emblem badge on the back was glued on or is on a plug. if it is on a plug is there a way to cover up the plug as it will look a mess with a plug there! thanks alot!

    its on a plug mate,best way to sort that out is once its removed,take everything off the boot lid interior glue a penny to where the holes are,go over the ouside of the bootlid and mark off the hold areas with maskin tape (bout 3layer thick) then with a soft sraper use sum body filler to fill in the holes then allow to dry an use a touch up pen/paint.

    its usually held in place with 2 plugs and of course the obligatory glue. i personally like the opel 'blaze' which u could use without the ring - but the only way to debadge would be to plug the holes.
