Hello everyone,

I am planning to de-badge the model designation on the back of my car.

I was wondering what the best way to do this is?

In particular, what is the best way to remove the left-over residue without using a power tool?

Many thanks in advance.
 
Warm the badge with a hair dryer and use dental floss to cut through the adhesive tape. Finish by using something like Sticky stuff remover to get rid of remaining adhesive..
There may be a colour difference depending on the age of the car.

And then be ready to T Cut and polish the general area to bring it back to near new condition. (Otherwise the badged area will look brighter than the general area.)
 
If you want to achieve a professional result you need to use pro kit; if not Makita at the very least Milwaukee 😉
That's a long way to go to buy a grinder? S'pose I could go see Laverne and Shirley while I'm there........ 😎
 
If you warm the residue left on the car you can often 'roll' it off with strong adhesive tape (gaffer tape etc.). I didn't need to use any kind of solvent / remover on the two I've done (one brand new, one 7 years old).

Oh and another bit of advice - don't post the same question in more than one area of the forum! ;)
 
Petrol, after removing the badge, soak some kitchen roll in petrol, place against residue, leave for 30 mins then the reside scrapes off easily. Just done it to the double sided number plate tape, came of in less than a minute. I had been scraping for about 30 mins using WD40 etc without much progress
