Best way to remove badge?

Post by medico on 2nd March 2010, 1:20 pm

I would like to remove my 'Forte' badge without breaking it.
Is the best way to use something like a fishing line or fine wire and gently 'saw' away at the adhesive pad behind the badge?
If so, can someone tell me where to buy such a line?

go to shop selling fishing stuff.....
DIY shop like Homefix etc...
Come meetout .. .some bros here got ready fishing line in their boot. ( wonder why.. hahahha) and zippo fluid....

Try to get it done asap if not as days past, the adhesive get too comfy and will be very reluctant to be removed..... ^_^...
Normally the logo should look like tat after removing.....

Do not use bare wire as may scratch the surface. Insulated thin wire AWG#26 is just as good as fishing line.
For easier removal, 'soften' the adhesive first by spraying electrical contact cleaner.

I personally find contact cleaner is better than zippo fliud.

It's spray can type, that is mainly use to clean PCBs, soldering joints, etc.
Very very mild alcohol. Can purchase from good hardware stores.

Mine was easy peesy; stuck my nails in, pulled and the Cerato and C&C logo were removed at delivery bay. Lady used some polish and there was totally no mark to speak of. Unlike Medico, mine also had no 2.0 badge, making my life a bit easier since that would have been removed anyway.

I got rid of the C&C logo as well; funny thing is nowadays they give you a really good quality metalised badge; in the old days (ok, ok 1969) it was literally a piece of stick-on paper....

Cerato?

Not Forte?

Are you sure you don't need a manicure now?

Saw a completely debaged white Koup today driven by an ang moh. He even replaced the Kia logo with something else. Couldn't see it well though.

It would be the retro Kia badge. Apparently in Korea, they all come with that. Many have done it and I just have not had time to do mine.
