Coming to DIY as of now nothing more, have installed a FIN(Shark Tail), De-badging has been done. Guys after i removed the Punto & Emotion badge the cars rear end looks Gorgeous, can clearly see the curvyness of the hatchdoor.
1. Remove the badge with bare hands , If you find difficult take a minus screw driver , cover with a cotton cloth and then remove it.
2. Take a 2000 sand paper(water sheet ) and sand that area gently - Do not give heavy pressure that may remove the clear coat too.
3. Take a good amount of rubbing compound and apply on that area and then rub till you get the original shine.
Sorry for bumping an old thread.
But I have some inputs for this thread.
I've debadged my swift with the help a spool of thread(the same thread which we use for stitching).
The thread was used to remove the badges(by moving it to and fro in between the badge and the place where its sticked).
Then used the rubbing compound to remove the glue.
We can even use kerosene instead.
And screwdrivers can harm the paint finish,I think.
Will post the pictures soon..
And one more thing,when we use polishes or waxes(or similar things),there is a chance that the waxes can stick into the cavities.So debadging is done.
