They're Irmscher badges ka$h.

They are hard to get them going. I put a screwdriver in a towel to leaver the edge off. Once it starts it's easy.

One side it came off great and no sticky mess was left. The other side I was unlucky- the sticky **** was left everywhere. It took about an hour and a half to pick it all off and then get the remaining mess off with a bit of rubbing compound.

Also behind them the paint is a diff colour as they have bee on for 1 and a half years. Don't know if this will blend in eventually- but I'm not bothered really as I'm putting new ones on ASAP :D

Don't use a screwy, one slip on that's it. Get a plastic credit card or similar. It really gets behind well, without scratching the paint.

:)

I'm a little stuck now. It's payday friday and I don't know what to get.

Either the Irmscher rear skirt or the flycatcher one like goldpenguin has. Can't tell what would be best :?

I got this old pic- can anyone be so kind and do a photoshop for me?



Thanks,
Andy
