    We did a bit of debadging at the hotel just before PV last weekend - - - well when I say 'We' it was a Ffoeg Masterclass and we just watched the master at work. You really dont need any hairdriers or solvents - just pull the letters off with ur fingers (ouch I know) then give the area a thorough buffing up with some good quality poilsh this should remove all the stuff.
    Personally I used a little bit of white spirit (not too much tho) and after about 5mins it was almost gone - a good polish should see it gone.

    Good luck....and remember to get some piccies....we love to see debadged cars

    no paint came off but I only used a smidgen.... tbh I wouldnt recommend it just incase. maybe meths would be better. just use some good polish - keep at it and it'll be off in no time.
