Debadging the Discovery 4

As discussed previously in a post regarding the debadging of the GLR Freelander 2, I’m not a fan of spec level badges so, yesterday, on a whim, I removed the HSE badge.

The procedure was fairly straightforward:-

  •  Using a length of very thin paracord the letters of badge were ‘carved’ off. leaving behind the sticky backed foam. 
  • Rubbed off the foam using fingers.
  •  Applied ‘Sticky Stuff’ liberally to the sticky residue left behind.
  • Cleaned off the sticky residue with a soft cloth.
  • Applied some T-Cut to blend the area covered by the letters with the surrounding paintwork.
  • Finally applied some polish to finish the job off.
