I know a bloke that used a dremel to remove a badge - yep gring it away :lol:

hehehe needless to say he fouked the paint once the bit he wanted to grind away had gone and dremel kept digging :lol:

use ya video library card to work around the glue inbetween the badge and panel, then with a piece of cardboard, and a small block of wood on that, use a flat blade screw driver against them to prise the badge up - only do this if its stubborn and REAL gently, coz if you skid off..... :oops:

The cardboard protects the panel from the block of wood (thin piece of wood)

Then use some prepsol to get it off, once you used prepsol you will never use anything else again, and whats better it leaves NO residue. Some drug making countries refine it again to make freon for there drug making (jokes :lol: )

don't think id go as far as using degreaser to remove the sticky stuff unless it was weak stuff.. use wax and grease remover as that is what its made for, or go tree hugging hippy style and use eucalyptis oil, it smells good too :P

It was the $1.50 cheap spray on stuff, so I knew it wouldn't be high strength or quality...

I removed the "5 Litre V8" badges from the guards of my Fairmont. Heated them up with a hair dryer to soften the glue, then slowly slid a stiff piece of nylon under the badges and lifted them off, being careful not to push the front edge into the paintwork as I levered up the back edge.
Clean any remaining gunk off with Prepsol, then polished and waxed.
Can't tell they were ever there.
