    Maybe just use a light polish , avoid the cut and polish first.

    I took mine off when the car was new. I used fishing line and just rolled up the residue with my finger, all came straight off.

    I apologise for the dribble I some how invoked in post 16. I thought we were talking about badges.

    Cheers. Pic is posted in my rides section of the rear. I have no problem with what it is. I think that seems to be a misconception. I love the car. I love that it's a Holden. I love it's a sv6. I just didn't necessarily like the badges plastered all over it

    I do agree with the harsh comment tho. I asked for opinions. Not, you will just another p plate wanker in other words. Which I'm not. I'm a late 20s guy with a young family. So thanks for the generalisation and relating me to everyone else with a base model commodore. Perhaps considering the wording in your opinion next time will result in less aggression from other posters. I didn't take it personally. It's the internet. If I did, id cry myself to sleep every night

    There's a thread in the how to section using prepwash. I went to do this method but when I got to the shop the dude recommended the brand Rust-oleum Decal and Adhesive remover

    Just sprayed it on. Let it seep into the sticky stuff. Fishing line behind the badges and then just a bit of elbow grease and the product to get remaining residue off. All badges came off fine apart from the Holden badge which has left a faint outline. Jr_ recommended the McGuire's scratch stuff so I'm going to give that a go, it says it's for removing blemishes/faint scratching from paint

    I think the idea of the stuff I used is it won't be that harmful to paint surfaces due to the fact it smells like it's a large percentage eucalyptus concentration. You may not have to reapply polish because of this. Probably still a good idea anyway. I've got to do my whole car as it's covered in swirl marks so I wasn't too worried at the present

    Here's a picture of rear for those who didn't see final

    A bit harsh, but OK you're entitled to your opinion. In the same tone, here goes... You shouldn't be talking about what is and isn't cringe worthy with regards to badges... Changing to quad tips isn't "hiding that it's a V6", it's changing it to tips that fill the exhaust exit cut outs on the rear bumper better.

    And debadging is far far better that putting badges on it from something it's not! Like HSV badges for example. How does something without a badge look crap and cheap? It looks clean and subtle. Compared to garish crap people stick on the backs of their cars that really make them look crap and cheap.

    E.g.:
    Capture.JPG

    This looks FAR FAR better...

    NO!!!! That'll just scream "wanker!"

    OMG! That looks fantastic, hard to tell its not an HSV!
    Raj do you think my bum looks big in that shot?

    I'm changing the badging again this week, replacing Special Vehicle flag and Black Flag with this, about where AFM badge was:

    And the Series II badges up front flanks with this:

    So let me get this straight, you want your car to look like a HSV? That's precisely the WANK factor I'm referring to!

    370 what does that even mean.

    Pulling badges off to clean up is cool. But adding WELL>. The general consensus seems to be , no badges on the car that dont belong. Like HSV on a SS. Etc

    First. Lets keep the thread on topic here. Its about debadging. If you want to raise an argument from another thread - take it to that thread or better yet PM each other so I dont have to read your petty squabbles.

    Second. I think the debadged look, looks cleaner. But I think - especially on wagons it needs something to break it up. Im contemplating doing mine. But perhaps just leaving the SSV badge. In particular the VF SSV badges with the red V just to give it a bit of pop on a black car.

    I also wanna scrap the AFM badges on the guards and throw maybe some 6.0L V8 ones there.

    Pirate I think those VVT badges look fugly. They belong on a Camry or Civic. They look very bland and boring.

    I think leaving the ssv on yours grennan would look good. I just didn't want anything on it at all. It doesnt sound like a v8 so it's not fooling anyone haha
