Debadging

So I am debadging my wj and I noticed that after I got all of the glue off the jeep u can still kind of see where the letters are. How do I get rid of that or make it less obvious??

That's what I've been using but it still leaves a slight outline should I just keep applying until you can't see it anymore?

You can try that, but it is possible that the paint surrounding the letters have faded just enough to always show where the letters used to be. You may also want to try a good wax to bring the color back a little.

Try rubbing alcohol. Seems to do the trick when other things don't. Just a little on the end of a microfiber cloth should do it.

Hair dryer and dental floss. That way most of the adhesive stays on the badge.

Angle grinder and a blow torch should do it!!!

Alternatively a bit of cutting compound should lose the marks!
