Removing rear markings

I want to remove the vtec and type sh stickers and the prelude lettering. I know how to get the prelude letterin off but not the other two stickers and I dont know how to get rid of the ghost image they will inevitably leave and i'd like to know both of these things before doing it.

So any tips or instructions?

Re: Removing rear markings

If you get off all the sticker residue than wash it and maybe give it a little buffing.

Re: Removing rear markings

yeah ive been doing autobody for like 9 years now. you just gotta make sure its almost parallel to your surface or else youll dig in. for the polish i just used a hand polish you can get at any detailing shop or autobody supply store. i dont really have a ghost image, my cars red, and the paint is slightly faded

Re: Removing rear markings

My lude is black. I feel like it would leave a pretty bad image.

Park car in sun, peel stickers off, buff with compound, then wax.

Re: Removing rear markings

theres a little rubber wheel you can get, that attaches to a drill and will basically scrub them off and wont hurt your paint at all. gets rid of the goop and everything.

Re: Removing rear markings

This is what I use . You spray it on and it works its way into the glue and dissolves it.Defiantly don't use a razor blade and I would suggest you either keep the SH label or buy new ATTS labels because it differentiates your true SH car from the visual (wings,lower side body panels@wheels) nock offs.!

No offense but NEVER use a razor or anything sharp or that could potentially damage the paint. The best way is to heat it up to melt the adhessive and then peel it back. Then use a chemical like Goo-Gone to get rid of the residue. They also sell kits to remove stickers and vinyl at auto shops. They usually are just pads that you put on a drill and it buffs off the sticker and residue.

I worked in a detail shop for quite a while and now own my own detail business.

It is worth taking the extra time and care to do it right rather than using something that could potentially damage the paint and then you would have to spend more money to get that fixed.

Easy killer...lol the guys got pride for his sh. Relax. Handling is as much about who's driving as what your driving.

Thanks for all the help guys. I'm probably going to take all the markings off, get a JDM honda badge, and an ATTS honeycomb grill (any clues as to where to get one?) and take the H Off the hood.

Re: Removing rear markings

Will be doing this sunday or next week. Need to get something to buff with. I'm gonna have to borrow a power drill to attach it to from someone. Got the compound to buff out the ghost image.

This'll be my first time buffing so any tips are much appreciated before i do it

easy killer? sure thing mr 138 posts and negative rep.

good luck getting your stickers off, my 10 year old nephew could have figured out how to do it by himself.

... you want us to teach you how to wipe your a$s too?

ive been doing autobody for close to 10 years now. i know how to handle a razor. sure, if no one uses one, id advise against it. but i can handle on quite well. also, the eraser wheel is a good idea as well
