Default OH NOES! I spy an SSEi!

That'* right! I spy an SSEi that isn't supposed to be there!

See it?


See it yet?


SEE IT NOW? YUCK. That'* the side that had a whole **** load of dirt all inside it and everything. Most of the scratches were pre-removal but once removed you can notice it a lot more. POO!

Other side came out fine btw :-/

Holy crap yeah those are HUGE!!
Anyway, maybe a good claybar job could help things out. It'* hard to tell if it'* really the paint fading or just crap still embedded in it.

Many typically claybar etc then wax after removing badges. Have you tried any cleaners or claybars?

i didnt claybar after i took any of mine off.

lots of goo-gone, lots of time, and a tiny bit of lighter fluid with generous amounts of water followed by a lot more goo-gone.

EDIT: after re-reading, im not sure that my prior comments actually helped or addressed the issue, but im leaving it because theres a small chance it was relevant.
