Also, use waxed dental floss, in preference to unwaxed. Yes, it makes a difference. The waxed floss cuts cleaner.
The mint flavor works even better.

I debadged last night following the hairdryer/dental floss/goo gone....but now I have swirls. I used a wax...but still see them. Will plastix work (MaGuires) to correct the swirls....or what other recommendations?

Thanks

What were you doing to cause the swirls...?

I took mine off. No hairdryer/no goo gone/no swirls.

Gently rubbing the residue with goo gone and a lint free towel.

Ouch, I'd say the towel did it. They can pick up surface dirt and left over residue and make those swirls

I'd suggest investing in a microfiber cloth

You get a star for the front and back, a larger one for the gas lid, 4 Mercedes logos for the wheels and 4 tire valve caps with the Mercedes logo. It's on sale this month and it comes with directions to remove the old emblems.
Can we still buy the emblems somewhere? I saw one on ebay but something looked off about the size
