I just pulled my rear badge to turn it into an 'evil m'... The car is a 9 year old mettalic gold colour, been under hot sun all its life. Turned out there are actually some paint scratches around the border of the badge Dont know how that would have come about, looks like its just due to dust build up and that then rubbing along the edge for 9years or something... Not all that noticeable once you are a couple of metres back though.
Took me freakin ages to get all the sticky crap off!!!
i went to pull my door guards, got my first one off and it looks like the paint around it is imprinted with the mold. there is a outline that will ot come out. tried everything from gas to wd40 to goo gone. im stuck. anyone have any ideas? this happened to anyone else?
just seems wierd that 12000 other people can do it and i cant lol!
Mine were a pain in the butt. Getting guards off wasn't too bad but it took a lot of pressure, some tough paper towels, goo gone, and about an hour of scrubbing afterwards to completely clean the ring off.
I had to use my fingernails on top of the paper towels for most of it, it was grueling but eventually got it off.
yeah i tried that. the guards and the main glue in the middle came off...but it looks like its literally in my paint. and it looks like shit. so im gonnna ask a detailer at work tomorrow to see if he cant get it out
I removed mine using fishing line to cut through the adhesive (like a saw, back and forth behind the badge). The line heats up quickly and slices the adhesive nicely I still had the residual stuff though, and for that I used finger nails and Goo Gone. No matter your method, the adhesive is a b*tch to remove!
I have been successful using dental floss (the long string from box) as a removal tool, that on several vehicles.
Worst badges are the one having pins behind (learned the hard way) and patching with painting was needed.
This leaves very little residue which will be easy to remove with 70% aceton without damaging the clear coating and paint.
I went to a local body shop and borrowed some adhesive remover and it came off easy.. I got it all nice and wet and then just rubbed with a towel and it came right off.. My paint wasn't affected by it at all!
If you know anyone at a body shop just ask them for adhesive remover and everything under the emblems came off.. As for the crown molding on the doors I put my drivers lisence under one corner and to get it started and just pulled and all the adhesive came off with it.. there was nothing but some dirt under it and that was it.
Can anyone tell me exactly what bulbs are required (part #) to change them all in the headlight assembly. Including headlights, turn signals, foglights, etc. I have a 2008 6i Sport Value Edition.
I've had my Mazda 6s wagon for under a year and I got an idea to mount a 2018 Mazda 6 front end on to my front end. I got this idea when I saw a guy who has a Nissan Stagea 260rs and he put the front end of an R34 GTR onto his. I am wondering if that would be possible with my idea. Now I have...
I know with a previous vehicle I owned there were forum members that managed to remove the lense itself from the headlight assembly. reason for doing this was to paint the inside of the housing in the same colour as the vehicle paint itself. I'm wondering if that's something that has been done...
Well after a couple years of function, the passenger side mirror decided it doesnt want to auto fold anymore.
I can hear the motor spinning so I took it off and completely apart to see if I could see a possible problem. Unfortunately I didnt see any smoking gun. I put it back so I at least have...
