That's a nice looking spark you have there. Can I suggest you one thing? Get some side molding like the ones on Micra (not the fatty OEM Chevy ones) it'll complete the looks.

Got the alloys from the dealer itself? How much did they cost you? Thanks!

OT, I've a identical dent below the rear light!(on the edge)

Hey guys. Since everybody's problem is removing the glue stains after de-badging, how about using some rubbing compound (paste/liquid) for the purpose? Since it removes traded paint from the body, would it work properly for this purpose??

Glad you liked it.

I had earlier thought of installing side mouldings + Roof rails + OEM spoler. The lack of money forced me to think and re-think on these cosmetic upgrades. I later decided that the doors of car look cleaner without the moulding. Roof rails requires drilling of holes + they are purely for aesthetic purpose. Spoiler also had to be fitted after drilling holes so opted out of that as well.

The alloys are OEM alloys, came with the car so i dont know the price.

Aah dents !!! I have lots of them here and there, the cost and time involved is preventing me to get them fixed.

Removed the Chrome work on rear lights. Came off easily after spraying W-140 and leaving it for like 10mins or so.

I debadged my Accent. The boot was easy, but the logo on the sides left its mark behind. Nothing worked - Nail polish remover> Keroscene> Diesel> Petrol> 3M spray(similar to wd 40). Its Hard like feviquick.

Removed the "maruti-suzuki" and 'zdi' badge. Heated up with a hair dryer and removed them using the thread technique. Some of the glue was in the boot. Formula 1 bug and tar remover helped me remove it completely. Since its a new car, there is difference in paint shades.

One more Debadged Swift on Indian Roads. Used dental floss (Had to use being a Dentist) ,hair dryer, diesel and old cloth to remove the adhesive on a hot sunny day. Finally gave a shampoo wash to complete the procedure. Valuable comments welcomed.
