Default Goo Remover

I just removed a badge from my car and holy crap that
adhesive **** is hard to take off, any suggestions on what to use.
I tried my wifes nail polish remover, and it did nothing.
does that "goo gone" from canadian tire actually work?

Any suggestions would be highly appreciated!!

WD40 works really well


Just make sure no matter what you use that you clean the area with dish detergent afterwards followed by a coat of wax.

I had some trouble with GooGone leaving a mess that I wasn't able to wax & polish back up.

I tried the Bug & Tar Remover the next time and it worked like a charm for me.

the correct way to debadge is to buy an "eraser wheel" from lordco or other auto parts store. slap it on a basic electric or pneumatic drill and use low rpm. effortless double sided tape/decal removal from painted surfaces. it wont damage the paint....unless you press really hard or use crazy rpm.

edit: oh yeah and it wont eat your original paint like nail polish remover (acetone) lol.

^yup it works great when i was working summer job in a bodyshop

i went crazy rpm coz the whole door needs to be repair/painted so i went thru the paint with it hooked up to an air gun bahaha XD

but bad thing about it is for the first few times using it, it's hard to get the hang to do it stable. even at such a low rpm in the video, the guy's hand is still shaking a lot

The "eraser" won't damage paint, as long as it's not fresh paint and not a bumper. Those 2 are a no-no. Another good way, is to use a "wax and grease" cleaner with a plastic spreader to scrape.

In that video, the guys hand is shaking, cause he's not holding the drill tight enough thus having the wheel bounce and the vibrations then make his hands look unsteady. And something about the way he runs the drill then touches the door, bugs me. I hate it when people do that.

You won't have time...because by the time your through the clearcoat, your down to the primer..it will burn through that fast! Trust me! I've seen my fair share of new kids coming out of school, thinking its gods gift to taking off pinstipes and glue/tape cause their teachers told them its ok, up until they take it to fresh paint, bumpers or plastics. Wax and grease with a plastic spreader is about as idiot proof there is without scratching, gouging or weakening the clearcoat and paint.

checked out the price of the wheel and Lordco wanted $30 for it. So I went with the "Bug & Tar Remover" for $6.99 from CT and it worked like a charm!!
Thanks again!
