De-badged my focus today.. But now I can't get the adhesive off :mellow: Got no autoglym tar remover or anything of that sort. Can anyone recommend something I might already have about the house? Tried WD40 but it didn't touch it. Would white spirit get it off or would that strip the paint work? What about the missus' nail polish remover?

Warm it with a hairdryer and peel it gently.
Or use sticky stuff remover-

Been heating with hairdryer mate but it isn't peeling that easy and it's just making the paintwork really hot. Can you recommend anything I can get locally? From a tesco wilkinson or wickes for example lol that's about all I can get to without an unwanted trek out

You could use alcohol wipes like used for sterilising hands or try this-

Instead of petrol you can also use petrol lighter fuel (Zippo or Ronson)

acetone / nail varnish remover should do the job , got the sticky stuff off mine with some car polish and a microfiber cloth took a little bit of rubbing but came off quite easily

Worked a treat :)

Right lads.. Fully de-badged. Picked up some loctite superglue remover today and gave it ago, dabbed it on round the adhesive, left it a few min then pealed it off, worked a treat.

However, I dropped a right clanger when doing the adhesive on the side ghia emblems on the doors, left the stuff on too long by the looks of it as it has physically burnt the outline of the emblem into the door :wacko: strange thing is the pack says leave it on over night, I left it on for 15-30min and its melted away the door.

Am I gonna be able to buy replacement trip parts for the doors and how much are they likely to be?
