Default Ugly Outline After Debadging

Is there anything I can do to buff out this outline? I debadge the truck and got all the glue off for sure, but there is some outline leftover. Any products I could try? So far I've used googone to get the gunk off and this outline will not budge.

I would definitely 2nd that.

Because your paint is in such terrible shape I would get a polish [or compound] to help blend the marred paint with the freshly exposed paint.

you denfinately are going to have to hit that with a compound or swirl remover...no guarantee that the badge mark will go away, but it will decrease its obvious outline you have now.

It's bad that I can tell that badge said "sport".

You need to do this... http://www.superiorcarcare.net/megua...m_campaign=CSE

Then wax, it will make a huge difference.

I agree with M.Scipione Use a orbital buffer and Meguiars ultra cut and finishing polish. From personal experience it will look like new paint.

I agree with the Scratch X but you will need a power polisher to get that out. My old Dakota was scratched up like that and I had to use an orbital polisher to get the marks out.
