Question About the Paint Under Rear Bowtie on Trunk.

Has anyone else noticed a outline of where the bowtie was on the trunk after they took it off.
I took mine off toady and after getting all the glue off. The paint under the bowtie is darker then the rest. of the trunk.
Is the paint faded this much or does this just need be buffed out to match.
If so what steps are and products need to do it.
I didn't think it would fade that quick the car was only built 9-2009

I tried to get a pic of but it don't show up.

What I might do if i can't buff it out is get another smaller badge from another model and paint it black and put it in the middle so it's not noticeable.

That's what i was thinking too. It's only noticeable from certain angles.
But it's enough of a reason to keep the side door moldings on the car.

What's the best to use as far a polish and etc.
I have a buffer but that i've only used it to take wax off.
I've never buffed out any scratches or anything.

If you have an orbital buffer, you can try that. Just pick up some 3M polishing compound (pro series) Great stuff!

I use this one from time to time. It's just as good for simple projects.
