Fishing line, cut the double side tape with fishing line clean whats left with solvent. Test solvent under boot lid to test if ok to use before you use on exterior paint.

that was for the badges. use fishing line like a cheese cutter (remember cutting clay from the slab back in primary school with wire?)

to remove the trim, (I assume you mean the pinstripe trim along the doors?) you may be able to use the same method? i havent done that, so i can't help, i like my trims! :p

ok i did my equipe badges not too long ago, came up great.

fishing line doesnt work on the equipe badges.
get a blow dryer, heat up the badge (bout 30 seconds) then peel the badge off with ur fingers.
u then will have all the glue that goes with it. use Eucalyptus oil to remove this.
looks factory

My dad and I removed the badges of my Holden Commodore Executive Series II (makes me wish I bought a car with less letters and stickers on the back...) .

The 'Executive' and 'Series II' badges came off great, 'Commodore' we have managed to take off some paint, so I have to go get some touch up paint, and the 'Holden' seems to either have scratches or some glue left there, we really can't tell what it is because it doesnt feel like either, look s abit dodgey in some lighting.

Any idea how to fix up the 'Holden' side?

Ow also we used floss instead of fishing line...no one goes fishing in our family lol
