Not even a week after getting her I decided to de-badge the rear. I did leave the R however.

Used wax coated dental floss for the easy letters (awd) and a gift card for the letters that would break the floss.





Absolutely no ghosting which I'm pretty happy about. After I took the letters off I used a plastic bondo scraper to get some of the big stuff off, washed the area, polished it using my makita + polish ball attachment, wiped, re-polished as needed, then waxed.

It's all downhill from here :p

Plus minus 0.6 lbs if you get the sticker over the badge. Like a GT3, the Porsche emblem is a sticker.

I think de-badged rears look awful.... sorry
On the other hand, there is a lot of schmootz in between the characters. I want to put the "VOLVO" and "R" back on, but I don't want to deal with cleaning them.







So, for the time being, I'm badgeless...
