M Badge on rear

Recommended Posts

Seppuku has been performed!

However, since I've not had to use a hairdryer for over a decade I only got round to this job today after picking up my antique one from the folks at the weekend!

I'm hoping like Trickster said a bit of t-polish will remove the last bit of "ghosting":

T-cut will work but you ll need to polish the area afterwards, T-Cut is a cutting compound hence removing the top layer, the polish is then needed to protect the paintwork :)

Also you need the i badge to go on the end :P

or 'd' :)

thinking about purchasing this:

T cut is a polish too, it's just quite abrasive and usually does more harm than good. How exactly does this polish you're talking about protect the paintwork after t-cut has removed this "top layer" you're on about?

Would an AMG badge on the back of my car be frowned upon?

T cut is not a polish, its a cutting compound (as far as I am lead to believe)

The polish adds a layer of protection between the fresher paint and the elements

Clearly have no idea what you're talking about. All polishes are compounds of some sort with differing levels of "cut" (meaning how much paint they will remove). I wouldn't advise anyone to use t-cut because it's very aggressive and you'll end up taking away more than what's needed, it's like slicing a loaf of bread with a chainsaw...

Polish doesn't add any layer of protection, that's wax you're on about.

I think any advice about detailing is best kept to yourself until you learn a little (lot) more about it. :P

T-cut is ammonia based isn't it? Not cool for modern type paints really.

Autoglym SRP should have enough balls to remove things like this.

You're both wrong! I used T-Cut on a black car I once had, it took some effort but it eventually got rid of the black and came up a lovely stainless steel colour :thumbsup:

And your also wrong. Some cut and some fill.

SRP for example is a filler not a cutter!

SRP is a glaze, I was talking about polishes.

You do know the P in SRP stands for polish don't you.......LOL

They're hardly going to call it SRG (super resin glaze) because most people don't know what a glaze is when it comes to detailing so that's why it's called super resin polish.

SRP does have a very small amount of cut to it (very small) but ask anyone who knows a thing or two about detailing and they'll tell you SRP is a glaze.

Might wanna get yourself onto detailingworld so you're not consistently talking b******s. :P
