Well started to debadge my gt i managed to get the ramair and the drivers side badges off. But when i took the drivers side ram air off this is what was under it. Is there a cheap way to fix this?

Polishing compound and some elbow grease.

so that will get out the raised pant on the edges?

Yup. It's easier to buff off with a wheel if you have one.

Worth the effort, these cars look so much better with no badging.

it just looks like adhesive to me. goo gone, or any of those citrus based solvents did well for mine.

Yeah, that isn't paint, it's left over adhesive. Denatured alcohol will also take it off. Then if there is any discoloring or roughness left, hit it with some liquid polish.

No its paint trust me. i used goo gone to get the adhesive off and that was what was left. i had to use my finger nail to get all the glue off. It looks like the fender was repainted for some reason.
