Hi Mate,just got a omgea and want to get rid of the omega and the commodore badges
any advice on how to do it?
do they clip in or are they just glued on??
^^^^ i wouldnt be using a polish with any abrasives init at all it'll scratch the f#@k out of the paint unless you are using a buff an correct pad , just a good cream polish would do fineThe omega badge shouldn't have holes - they'd likely just be taped - but the holden badge might.
I'd just give it a go - worst case scenario is you put them back on.
Also, you may need some type of adhesive solvent to remove any gunk left behind by the tape. 3M have a good product but it's a little pricey and hard to come by. Or you could try goo remover. I'd be leaving the old eucalyptus oil alone though for paint you want to keep - it can be pretty harsh.
You might need to give the area a good polish as well with a bit of an abrasive compound to blend it all in depending how weathered the rest of the paint is.
That's what I was implying - just be careful about the machine you use. A good DA is probably best if you're not used to machines. Steer well clear of rotaries if you're a beginner - you're likely to fk up your paint in the first few seconds. Poorboys have abrasives you CAN use by hand but it won't give as good a result as if you used a machine. I wouldn't personally go beyond their SSR1 polish by hand. Too risky. But SSR2 on a white pad would be fine - again, it all depends on the condition of the rest of the paint. Start with the least aggressive option and work your way up. Just need to just see what it all looks like once the badges are off.^^^^ i wouldnt be using a polish with any abrasives init at all it'll scratch the f#@k out of the paint unless you are using a buff an correct pad , just a good cream polish would do fine
