Ford front badge refinish

Recommended Posts

2011 Edge Limited AWD 123,600 miles in great shape;

 

I would like to completely remove the blue paint from my front grille badge and just go with an unfinished badge.  All the clear plastic cover has chipped off and about 3/4 of the blue paint has eroded away.  I have tried a number of chemicals to strip the rest of the paint (yes, I was careful not to spill on any other surfaces) to no avail.  I have not yet tried acetone so maybe that will work.  Short of that, and without resorting to using steel wool on it, anyone have any ideas on how to remove the paint?  Maybe a Naval Jelly type actual paint remover??  I want to try to avoid removing the bumper/grill just to remove the badge.  Having done it a few times before I just want to avoid the hassle and simply paint strip the badge.

Thanks for any responses!

Hey thanks for the response.  I went ahead and gently removed all the blue paint from the emblem with progressively finer steel wool but they are still some swirl marks there if you look closely.  I like the idea of the overlay.  Thanks!!
