Have you ever noticed the unsightly buildup of polish and dirt that collects in the crevices of your car’s badges? Solve this problem by debadging your car. How do you do that? It’s easier than it sounds. Our Norwood, MA Boch Maserati team put together a quick how-to on this very subject.

Preliminary Steps

Before the actual removal of your car’s badges, clean the badge area. Use soapy water or exterior detailer and a clean microfiber cloth. “Melt” the badge adhesive with a heat gun. Ease some fishing wire beneath the badge lettering, removing it gingerly. Buff the debadged area with the short side of a drill buffer.

Final Steps

Spray soapy water onto the debadged area. Sand it clean with 3,000- to 5,000-grit sandpaper. Repeat the heat gun, drill buffer, and sanding steps until there are zero traces left of badge adhesive. Clean the area with a dry microfiber cloth. Shine and seal the debadged area with car polish and a car wax/sealant of your choice.
