    Spraying badge help?

    I'm thinking of taking off my rear badge and spraying it. I know how to get it off but what spray and/or primer would I need and also what's the best glue to use to put it back on? I was thinking spray glue as it shouldn't run down the paintwork once applied.

    If it's the griffin badge, it is glued and has a small plug at the top, so hot water(to heat the existing glue, then peel off, use a hair dryer if you wish)
    be careful not to scrape the paintwork though,
    The other badges are simply glued, use the same process,
    Use double sided tape to restick them,
    paint as you would any item

    I've debadged the rest of it. Plus seeing as the griffin isn't a whole badge (i.e. there's gaps in it) wouldn't the tape show through a little although it's practically see through.

    Thats what I was thinking...

    Maybe you just have to be a pro sticky tape cutter lol. Is there not any glue availble, like the one they use on the badge in the first place?

    I don't know. I was thinking spray glue because you can get to every part of the badge and it won't run.
