I had my body/paint shop remove the side emblems for me, after I removed the one from the rear decklid...it was a PIA. :thumbsdow
It took me about thirty minutes or so, as the automotive 3M tape certainly did its job by 'holding its ground'. I too used 'Goo Gone', but can't verify that the hazy film merely resulted from the use of this product on my car's finish. I use 'Goo Gone' quite a bit, and its always worked extremely well without a problem. Like the others, I too 'rolled-off' the remaining adhesive and also received the same blister(s).
Not wishing to experience this entire ordeal all over again (for each of the side emblems), I decided to take my car to my body/paint shop...who had been so helpful in the past. I explained to the owner what I had just gone through, as well as what I now wanted to have done. He advised that it would not be a problem since they utilize a 'special' automotive emblem removal knife to literally cut-away the emblem/automotive 3M tape from my car's painted surface. He also said that the hazy film I saw is usually present after tape removal...some sort of chemical reaction inherent to the tape, I guess. He said that they have a special automotive adhesive remover which removes this stuff without harming the car's finish.
Well, no sooner did I finish my cup of coffee, when they pulled my car back up front with the emblems removed and with no sign of that hazy film present anywhere...they even removed it from the rear decklid for me. Best of all, it didn't cost me a cent, plus they even gave me a free car wash...wow! I guess I should've gone to them initially...it certainly would've saved me time, frustration, and a painful blister. :fing02:
