This is a quick down and dirty to de-badge your PCX emblems

Tools:
1.Microfibre Cloth
2.Denatured Alcohol
3.Rubbing Compound
4.Fishing line


Lets begin!

Take that fishing line and get it behind the edge of the emblem. Pull it towards you with both hands, this will cut the glue from the emblem and body panel.

Image

Now use your finger to rub, the rubber glue/adhesive off the panel as best as possible.
Image

If the adhesive is being stubborn hit up the area with either a heat-gun or a blow drier. The blow drier is probably going to be a little safer for the noobs.
Image

Keep working on it slowly
Image

Once you have removed a good portion of the adhesive, you can saturate a rag with the denatured alcohol, then remove the access adhesive.
Image

You can now see the emblem has been completely removed, but there is a ghosting effect from emblem and the sun. This is where you will buff out the panel.
Image

Grab your microfiber cloth or old-white t-shirt and apply in small circular motions.
Image

First application

Image

Second and final buffing notice the difference between the first application.
Image

Done.

I use dental floss instead of fishing line but the results are the same.

Old credit card works too.


I would have warmed the badge first with a hair drier

Yes, hair drier or heat gun and it peels right off.

I agree with using a bit of heat (hair dryer) first. As well, there is a product available in the US (and maybe elsewhere) called Goo Gone which is great for taking off sticky residue from labels and things like that, so it would work good if there is a film of excess glue.

Most stickers, adhesives and glue residues come off easily using olive oil, butter and a hair dryer. Oil dissolves glue.
