Unofficial "I shaved my badges" thread...

Apparently we all shaved our badges this week, but except for threethirteen nobody posted it up. I thought we could all toss some pics up and document the occasion (add also becuase I love to pic whore and havn't done it much since I put my corrado away for a while in Feb
)
So let's whore 'em!
I'll start...
My back end, sans badges:


I found a use for my nice shiny 1.8T badge:


The ugly child:


A loyal member BayStateDubs even while wearing the rings:

And becuase most of you in here don't know...
The favorite child:

Don't be a sally. Get to it. A little wax will take care of any fade.
Nice shots so far guys. Keep 'em comin!

You're just jealous because you tried to sand yours off and ruined it.

well, i took off the A4 badge about 2 years ago, mainly to confuse cops, but i finally got around to taking the 1.8T and Quattro off yesterday, since i have done this to a few cars, i didn't really think about it, but does anyone have any before and after or even during pics so we could write a DIY about it. oh yeah, and i haven't taken new pics yet, i'll be siure to throw some up when i do.








-------------> see how i was able to bring this thread back up instead of making a new one, it's because i used that search button, yeah it was a little effort, i had to type stuff in, even had to try a couple different ways of spelling things, and try different words, but in the end it's sol goode, why, b/c i get a cookie that's why.


get away from my cookie newb

Did you wax it, etc? Usually that's all it takes. Mother's makes some product that fixes it right away too, part of the 3 stage kit, forgot the name if anybody wants to chime in with it.

Yeah I waxed and claybar'd it (reverse that order) but i didn't put as much effort into it as I should've so it didn't come out much better.....I'm thinking a polishing compund might work well.
