Quick Question - Debadging

Post by CynicalRobot » Fri May 04, 2018 12:13 pm

Hi All,

I am thinking of removing the M135i badges from the boot and just wanted to check i have the right idea before i go ahead!

My idea is to mask off around the badges, heat up the badges with a hairdryer then try and pry them off with a pry tool, something plastic like a credit card.

Once off i was going to heat up the left over glue again and and then dab some glue gone on the glue and peel it off - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Goo-Gone-Origi ... =glue+gone

Is this the best way? I ready somewhere people have used fishing wire?

Thanks!

Yep, hairdryer and fishing line or dental floss to remove the badge...
Then remove the leftover adhesive as you say :wink:

As above run floss behind them.

Never be tempted to pry them off though, even when they are starting to come loose.

All that happens is you lift one edge and there's a risk of the other side digging into the paintwork.

Dental floss and a hairdryer will do the trick. You may need a little elbow grease and sticky stuff remover to get the last bits of foam off.

+1 for hairdryer and dental floss. I cheated this time round and got the dealer to de-badge it

Defo dental floss, but I used hot water instead of a hair dryer. Came off in no time.

+2 for hair dryer and a plastic pry tool and masking tape so not to damage the paint work.

Isopropanol is the best for removing glue but watch your paint lots of water and polish after.

Good luck. :spotman:

Ive just done mine. Hair dryer and plastic card. Then a little bit of t-cut to take the last of the glue off. A quick polish and it looks awsome. Well worth it.
