    badge removal

    what is best to get the glue off thats left when you take the badges off?

    i used a hairdrier to soften the glue but its still taking ages.

    I used hairdryer and credit card to remove it followed by white spirits on a clean cloth to remove the majority of the glue, i the clayed the area and buffed off using a MF cloth

    I used a credit card to get the worst off, then gave it a go over with a dab of white spirit on clean rag.

    For about a month, you could just make out the faint outline of where the badges were. Over a short time, with cleaning and direct sunlight, it just seemed to fade away...

    WD40 is great, and then just polish the area after.
