    Hairdryer and dental floss is what I used, then buffed the area with Autoglym SRP :-)

    the last time i removed badges i used a heat gun (at a distance) to loosen the glue, an old credit card wrapped in a piece of cotton to get beneath the bagde and once the badges were off i sprayed the area with WD40 and rubbed the area with an old towel until all the glue was removed, keep applying WD40 until all the glue is removed.

    HANDY TIP! WD40 also gets chewing gum off cloth seats. (BY THE WAY i DON'T USE wd40 ON EVERYTHING SO GET THOSE FILTHY TOUGHTS OUT OF YOU MINDS

    Please tell me it was a plastic paint scraper!

    I found the quickest way to get rid of the gunge left after the badges are off is to keep rubbing your finger (with hard pressure) over the adhesive. It will come away in balls/rolls.
    Then a bit of de-greaser and polish.
    Clear your heads and get ready to run.
    Remember, the best times are yet to come.

    WD40 is the mutts nuts you can fix anything with a bit of wd40 and a toolbox full of different kinds of tape
