well for anyone with an outback with the colour code 1N1, Duplicolour DSSB05 is a perfect match for colour. I gave it all a sand with some 800 wet and dry, not through too much so i didnt have to use primer. Came up pretty good, except that cutting the double sided tape to stick the letters on is a pita.. Next time I'll just buy a genuine replacement93073AG020 )

Thought I;d re-use an old thread here.. Has anyone ever had issues with the paint chipping off around the outline of a badge? Took mine off this arvo, braided fishing line and metho on a rag. Didn't rub too hard with the rag but the old tape and adhesive just picked bits of paint off too.

 

I tried some Autoglym super resin polish stuff I had lying around, anyone have any better ideas or experience with fixing these tiny chips? (that doesn't require a whole paint match spray pack and full sanding smooth..). I can't really see a way to get rid of these marks without some fine wet and dry sanding and lots of polishing. 

 

There is still a fair bit of super hard adhesive on there, but a fair few chips too.

 

I doubt the new gen4 badges will cover this up.. Cheers

hehe i did actually know yours was stainless (I've read over your build a couple of times, sweet ride!)... I was still interested to know if the wrap had effected the stainless dumps at all OR if you still had any heat issues through the firewall or anything.

hey duncan did you ever get a wheel alignment after doing your lca rear bushes on the front suspension? I just noticed that those mounts you picked up from the wreckers aren't normal outback mounts, did you run those or change the bushes into your outback mounts? I've installed the same bushes in my outback recently but went full sideways offset, not the 5-o'clock type position.
