    Problem when debadging

    Just bought an astra mrk 4 and decided to debadge her last night but got a bit carried away and took the vauxhall badge off the back aswell which left 2 holes where it clipls on. I didnt realise this before starting.

    Whats the best thing to do to get rid of them? Buy a new badge or fill them in with something and use touch up paint to cover it up?

    depends the extet you want to go to really, ideally need to be filled in and smoothed off, touch up paint would probably show imo, probably just get another badge

    Stick some lexus lights on your car, that way people will look at those instead of the holes.



    Failing that a new badge for the back, VX, opel or holden are normally what people choose.
