    Thanks Mike! Lived in Pueblo for 40 years before coming to Michigan in 2010! Ran a speed shop there called Performance Associates.

    The links provided before my post are great... here is what I have done.

    1. Heat gun or hair dryer - Used to loosen up the tape/glue so you can work it off. Be patient don't force it.
    2. WD40 - Works well to loosen the glue on the remaining tape.
    3. Old Credit Card - To scrape off the tape/glue.
    4. PrepSol - Nice to clean most of the remaining glue/residue.
    5. Buffing/Polishing compound - removes that last little bit of glue.

    Your welcome...

    Wow, that's a long time. I make it down there every once in a while, as there are some great roads with plenty of scenery when heading West. Plus, I have a couple of friends down there as well, so it always makes for a nice visit.

    Good luck with badges!
