Hey all,
quick question:
I took the Hybrid lettering off my 08 escape and after many attempts of making it not visible you can still read it perfectly because the paint is darker where the letters were. no tape remains...
any suggestions? :stop:

3 yrs later it's probably the difference from sun fade.

You might try picking up a Meguiar's clay bar kit and work on the area. It should take care of the oxidation of the surrounding paint and any surface residue left over where the badge was.

I'm not sure what color you car is but once upon a time I had a 1993 Ford Probe in Electric Current Red (candy apple red metallic) when I bought it in 1997 it had a sticker on it from the dealer and when I removed it it left a shadow of darker paint. I just cleaned it and polished and waxed it and it faded in after 6 months. Then I got the whole car painted because of a defective paint job by ford.
