when i first put on my JDM emblems it was crooked and its been bugging the hell out of me for the past week.. so today i went and got some adhesive so i can remove the crooked emblem and set it straight.. well that all worked out fine untill i started using "GOO GONE" to remove the emblem.. i guess theres somthing strong about the chemicals in that because 2 streaks fell down my emblem and it looks like it got burned from it. like the plastic is discolored for the 2 streaks.

ok so now i have a question.. should i treat the emblems as if they're plastic, and google how to remove scratches from plastic? they feel more "wax-y" than plastic but i can't figure out what material they're made out of.. also, would getting burnt and getting scratched fall into the same catagory? like if theres a way to rid scraches on plastic would they work for a burn too?

any help would be appretiated.. thanks

Well considering a burn is a chemical change and a scratch is a physical change, I wouldn't say they fall into the same category of damages.. but fixing them would be the same. I.e you would sand off the top layer and then plastic-x/buff them smooth again. Not sure what emblem you're talking about, though, so it's kind of hard to advice what you do...

Ah gotcha. Not really sure what that stuff is exactly. If it's already ruined to the point where you have nothing to lose, I think light sanding and that plastic-x stuff for removing scratches in plastic might work
