    de-badging question

    afternoon all,
    its raining here, so i thought what better time to de-badge my astra! i done it on my last car, but the griffing left a pin hole under it, i was wondering if all mk 4 astras have this? if so i may leave it, i dont want to mess up filling the hole in . . . its an astra coupe.

    Erm I tried it myself and failed, the hardest part is getting somethin solid fitted behind the hole so u can fill on top of that really...

    Then i tried painting with a halfords touch up pen, needless to say, I have the badge back on now haha

    on my last astra, i removed it all found the hole, so i ended up puting A S T R A above the number plate to cover the hole, the T fitted perfectly, all spaced out nicely. plus it looked good! i may have to go for that option,
    thanks for you help.

    cheapest most effect way i have ever seen to fil holes DIY was to get tiny plastic bungs but paint them same colour as the car before putting them in,
