    Debadged

    I was going to go for fitting the vectra C pipe in my car today, but as soon as I opened the bonnet I got a horrible sinking feeling in my stomach as it occurred to me that I have no clue what I'm doing, lol.

    But I didn't want to waste the day!! So I got my mum's hairdryer out and debadged the back of the car instead

    I think it looks a lot better, although you can see where the sun hasn't faded underneath where the letters were. Anyone know how to fix that on the cheap, 'cause I'm skint!

    Cheers!

    Yeah, I've got the step by step printed out and had it outside with me. I'll maybe give it a go tomorrow, it's just I'm terrified of hurting my car

    De-Badging looks good!

    Dont worry, you wont hurt your car, if the worse comes to the worse then you wont have an air feed pipe. Just follow the instructions step by step and you will be FINE
