DIY: Vehicle Badging Removal/Replacement
Video tutorial on how to remove/shave your vehicles emblems/badges. This tutorial also includes how to install a new or replacement badge on your vehicle. Not all vehicles have smooth glue on emblems, some types have alignment holes in the backside which would need to be filled afterwards. Therefore it won’t be a clean removal process. Depending on how old your vehicle is, there maybe an outline or ghosting of the emblem, therefore the paint will need to be polished to remove this effect. This particular tutorial was done on a 2004 Volkswagen Golf TDI.
