they will not hav holes underneath.

You will need.

A hair dryer ot heat gun
A panel wipe of some description -

Tar and glue remover
bug and tar remover (available from halfords)
(petrol also does the job just as good but the fumes arnt so great for u):lmao:
Car polish (autoglym/megiars/etc etc)
loads of cloths/polishing rags (an old tshirt or 5 is good):Cool2:


Process - -

1. heat the badge a little, so as to soften the glue and make it easier to pull off, and remove the badge (BY HAND)
if this proves difficult wrap a screwdriver around a rag and VERY carefully work the badge loose (BUT I DONT REALLY ADVISE DOING THIS UNLESS TOTALLY NECESSARY)

2. use the panel wipe you have, and a little heat if necessary to soften and wipe away the residue that is left upon removing the badge.

Now you will be left with a bit of a mess i would have thought but dont worry.

3. apply car polish liberally to the badge area, leave to dry (as this will take longer due to the glue and the panel wipe) and buff off with a clean cloth.

4. having removed all badges in this way, polish the full boot panel with car polish in the usual way

5. stand back and admire


hope this helps.:Cool2:

yeah im sure i read that there`s holes in the body so the badges are it stuck on straight at the factorys, alltho it was an article on the bonnet and front end so im not too sure, make`s sence tho i suppose..
its not a problem i just want to be prepared when i take them of as i`ll need more time to fill the holes and touch up the paint.

feck bug and tar remover, get some cellulose thinners, wipe the residue and any foamy stuff left and it'll come right off.

Then clean and polish! :Cool2:
