I eventually got round to debadging the rear of the Corolla the other day.

I removed the Red 'Toyota' badge, the 'Corolla' badge and the 'Tsport' badge.

I think it looks a lot smoother and neater without the badges. Makes the car a bit more of an unknown without them too, as it's not a hugely common car and it looks fairly different from standard I guess removing the badges will keep those less knowledgable on the subject guessing :)

A quick blast of the hair dryer and a flat head screw driver had them popping off in no time. Using the edge of a credit card to saw off the remaining adhesive glue left on the body work, then a quick polish with some T Cut and the jobs a gooden :) Thoughts?

T-Cut?! That's a dangerous game to be playing.

I think the previous owner stuck them back on with superglue so no matter how much heat i put on them there is just a load of rock hard nasty residue left on the paintwork :(

I think its gona be a respray tbh cos i dont want to start getting the chemicals out just for the sake of debadging, its not like my cars got a nasty 1.0L tag on the back,

Ill get it done when i have the reiger front bumper fitted two birds with one stone an all that,

Glad you had a pain free experience though matey :)

Does look better Han! Good choice removing it
I got rid of the rear badges but Autoglym tar remover did the job in getting everything off, didnt need any t-cut - I have used the T-cut scratch remover stuff elsewhere on the bodywork though, bad stuff then?

Yeah it's not great. Very abrasive so can damage your paint easily. Far better using something like G3 if you want a cutting compound, followed by a good polish with something that won't leave swirl marks in the paint.
