Default removing badges

Hi guys
I know this has been threaded somewhere before but I cant find it.
So ... whats the best way of removing the badges from my SAAB. I think one way involved hair dryers.

Tony

I've heard that wax dental floss works very well also.

Just heat it up with a hot air gun or hair dryer and attack it with a small screwdriver!

As for debadging, when I debadged my old Mercury, I used a hair dryer and floral wire. Use dowels or knitting needles to hold the wire (or floss or whatever) taut otherwise you'll amputate your finger.

It is the answer to life, the universe and everything!

Often mistaken for being 42, it is in fact 900 (well C900 to be more exact).

I hate badging, cars always look smoother bereft of all extraneous clutter. Over here, fool owners of the poverty-spec model are always keen to badge their chariots as AMG, M\\\, GTi or whatever.

I prefer to have the good one in the first place and then take all the badges off. I am not seeking anyone's approval. If you know cars, you'll spot the correct details on the good model.
