Don't wax first. You don't want that badge sticking to wax. Let it stick to paint. Wax later.

I wanted to avoid waxing after. It is so hard to get the wax from between the letters.
But I supppose if it is recommended.......i will wax carefully and remove it with a Q-Tip

AND yes.....the i is getting reflection from our red wall....It is shiny silver

What'* the recommended prep work to the surface to reattach the badge? As Bill said, you don't want the badge sticking to a waxed surface. When I put my BC stickers on the glass I used denatured alcohol.
