Angry shaving the emblem leaves paint disfigured..

where the adhesive was on... it leaves some sort of smeared paint... if you look at it from 2-3 ft, you can see the outline of the accord and v6 symbol. do i need to buff or do some sort of treatment with it?

I got the same thing. I think it's cuz the adhesive ate into the clearcoat.

Don't stand so close when you look at it.

there is nothing you can do about it...because the paint is discolored from the rest due to the adhesive...you can usually use Paint Cleaner...or any kind of micro abrasive cleaner to help get rid of it...but other than that there is nothing you cna really do get rid of it completely

I'll bet no one will notice except for you and the people you tell it to before you show them. I'd just stop thinking about it, if you can. A polish/abrasive could just lead to bigger problems. Good luck though.,

My "ACCORD" and "V6" emblems came off fine. My HFP badge left its mark. Not too noticeable. I'm not going to bother fixing it.

My emblems took paint off with them...I think the paint on my car wasn't completely dry when they put the emblems on...which were put on crooked, I should add. I ended up having to get that area re-painted.

It sucked but the guy I took it to basically did it for free since I was having other work done (I was sideswiped while parked).

This is what happens guys. You know how you get tan lines and etc because clothing are covering part of your body but not others? That's exactly what happens to the area behind the emblem. That's one thing, the other thing is the achseive used is strong enough to the point where if your not careful, you'll start cracking the urathane clear coat but it shouldn't happen. The urathane clear coat is a pretty strong layer that won't typically come off compared to the color paint underneith it.

The color difference is because the rest of the paint around it got exposed to the sun and that's why you can't have a body shop color match something without the vehicle actualy being there. The body shop could use their colormatching code formula from PPG or Stando and do it perfectly to the very .01 oz and it still might not come out perfect as the rest of the color on your car, unless the car was fresh from the factory.

My father owns an auto body collission shop as well as an auto specialist shop so that's how I learn my info hehe.
