    Debadging MK4 astra rear :)

    Hello, when debadging the rear end of a mk4 astra G does the badge leave holes in the bodywork? ive heard the gryffon leaves two holes but only on the mk4?

    Can anyone redirect me to where i need to look if this is in the wrong place, ive looked in the how tos but can only see it for the mk5. Thanks alot Lee

    Yeah too much to even bother. To do properly they wil weld a plate on the inside to give them a base to fill in with cataloy or fibreglass then respray the whole boot and maybe have to blend the colour into the bumper nd rear quarters.
