Default What cutting polish for removing the crap around the badges?

I just de-badged the forester. Where the Forester and 2.5XT badges were, there is an outline of gunk that wont come off with Bug Off, Goo Gone, Or heat with elbow grease. There are also similar marks where the previous owner removed the Subaru of Georgia badges. So, what cutting polish would be sufficient for the job? Would a simple claybar do the trick? Was also thinking about trying the pencil eraser trick, but that sounds too scary.

Let me know please!

Thanks!

Never heard of it. I will have to try it. Did you use goo gone or anything else before that? I have heard of people using wd-40, naptha, and kerosene, eek.

So, it came off easy and didnt mess with the paint?

Thanks man!

What was the usage procedure? Do you let tit sit on the goo for a while or just whipe and rub?

lol no i'm afraid of using anything other than this and goo gone...It took off all the goo without hurting the paint or the clear coat at all...For the trunk I didn't give goo gone a try, but a lot of other people have used it without a hitch

with this, there was no need to let it sit. I poured a little bit in a microfiber towel and I started rubbing the goo and it was coming off right away. Then I was the trunk and used turtle wax polishing compound and there were no marks or anything after that!!!

yeah, i say with some heat and turtle wax bug and tar remover that should do the trick. It might take a while to heat up the glue to get it soft enough, but i definitely recommend the turtle wax b&t remover.

Use meguires ultimate compound (G17216) on a clean cotton cloth, with light pressure till the stain is gone. Then use your prefered wax to reseal and cover with.
