Uh oh, is this the beginning of people rebadging their Subarus as higher models? I guess that started with people putting WRX badges on their NA Imprezas. Perhaps it is time to debadge.

you might want to leave that AWD sticker there... in case your car gets towed, they know it's a AWD.

Take a hairdryer, an eraser, some and some paint-frienly solvent.

Heat up the stickers, peel them, use the eraser to clean up the left-overs. Use the solvent as a last resort for final cleanup, you shouldn't need it.

It took me around 15 minutes to completely debadge my car, but be patient, the slower you do it, the less rubbing you have to do.

sorry to say this guys but the AWD sticker doesn't really matter sometimes, because the other day i saw a legacy outback wagon getting towed by the front two tires and the rear was on the ground, and don't they have AWD badging and stickers on the side windows?

As far as I know, WD40 is a DEGREASER. It is not a lubricant. Can someone correct me if I'm wrong?

I actually use a citrus solvent called "De-solve It". It works pretty well with a hair dryer and cleans off easily

ahem
*reading from WD40 bottle*
"stops squeaks, cleans and protects.....
lubricates, cleans, protects, penetrates, displaces moisture"

hehe
WD40 didn't work on the adhesive on my car, I had to use goo gone' that stuff works perfect though, and didn't even fog the paint (just keep it wet and use a clean cloth to wipe)
I just took all the gold trim off my 97 Limited, and there's no marks except where the paint didn't fade after 4 years, and all I need to do is go ver the edges of those areas with a polishing compound, and they'll be invisible.......

Question De-Badge & Goo Gone. Help.

If I could search I would!

When de-badging, I've read to use goo-gone to get rid of the glue residue. But I am weary of whether or not it will damage the paint and/or clear coat?? They have the yellow stuff in the 8oz and orange (says de-greaser) in the 24oz. I have the yellow stuff.

Anyone used the stuff on a new car before?

Thanks!
Dan
