Default Fading after debadging

I de badged the tailgate on my ram and there's some fading around the 4x4 so there's a slight outline in the sun and at certain angles. Just wondering if anyone else had this problem and how they fixed it. Will that buff out with some turtle wax?

Cheers,
Chris

I had the same thing with mine. I wasn't able to buff it out or anything, so I shaved the handle and repainted the tailgate. all for $300

Right when I debadged mine, I could see the fading. After I washed and waxed it a couple of times I can't see it anymore.

yeah same thing here, got some 3M scratch remover to work on a small scratch and made the fading disappear too, worth a try

I recently debadged my 02 and removed its factory door molding. So it was on there for 7 years or so. Slight discoloration right when done. Gave it good wash and shine and now you can't even tell.
