Well last night I debaged the truck. Pretty much easy stuff, I took off the badges all the black stuff that stayed behind them. I rubbed the surface w/ a sponge soap and water. After it was clean I took off w/e excess adhesive w/ 3m adhesive remover. Now my paint in that area is dull. Like the shinny clear coat is gone:disgust:. The remover says it totally safe to use on vehicles. Even the guys in the detail dept here at the dealer use it on vehicles to take off the tape adhesive off the vehicles when they get delivered. I dont know what to do. Im scared that somehow I fucked up the paint. Well the guys in detail have it. Hopefully they can fix w/e it is that I did.

Re: Debadging problems

mine did the same, but it went away after a while. try a little polishing compound (not rubbing compound). Then wax that area.... don't worry man.

Re: Debadging problems

you need to hit it up with some 3m hand glaze. its a really mild polish that will bring back the shine and remove any swirl marks and haze. finsh off with a coat of wax then

Debadging problems (pt.2) Problem solved!

:D

Thank god. Like in my original post, I was scared I messed up the clear coat debadging my truck. Well I took it to the pros here in the dealer and as mentioned before, polishing compound, glaze, and a coat of wax did the job:econo::thumbup::yup:!
