Hey,

Whilst fitting my CTR spoiler tonight, I noticed that my rear Civic badge is peeling off and probably won't be long before it falls off.

If I remove it using say a credit card, and give it a good clean, is it going to leave behind discoloured paintwork, or is de-badging fairly easy to do?

If I take it off, I'll see how it looks, otherwise I'll order a replacement and get it refitted.

Easy enough to get it off, and if your boot hasnt been repainted then you shouldnt have an issue with any colour mismatch :).

Dental floss is the best way. Mines an 06 and I debadged it last year with no visible marks.
Is dental floss strong enough Jonny ? I put my new number plate on with sticky pads the other day but put it on a bit p!ssed so need to get it off again lol. But i used the proper number plate pads and i cant move it with my hands :/

Loads of warm soapy water keep rubbing it in with elbow grease then a bit of wax and polish that's all I've ever done
Was about to ask, as it fell of tonight, and I'm left with some gunk.

Tried hot water without soap and a small amount of meths, but the gunk is stil there.

If soapy water doesn't work, what else can I use to get rid of the gunk?

Any particular wax mate?

Got rid of the gunk with elbow greese and some soapy water, slight outline still remaining which some wax should sort out for me .... is T-Cut a safe option or too strong for civic paint? :)

I wouldnt use T-cut, think it'd ruin the civic paint. i took mine off whilst cleaning the car. you could see the outline but after a couple of weeks and a couple of washes it was gone altogether.
