Disassemble.

Tools:
  • Blue Fiat Badge
  • Some sort of thin, small 'leveraging' object (I used an old bank card)
  • Abrasive paper (I used, P180 and P2500)
  • Warm water
  • Paint preparation wipes
  • Spray paint (whatever colours your heart desires)
  • 3M double sided tape (or something similar)

To remove the central logo from the silver case, simply warm the 'sticky stuff' up that resides behind it. You will need a little leverage to pry it from the silver backing (I used an old bank card).
Read: I wouldn't use a flat headed screwdriver as that may chip the badge.

Hello,
I sprayed silver backing and while the paint was still wet, I pushed it into the grooves.
I took my time when removing the original blue paint and not to remove the Fiat silver paint.
Thanks.

Re: Blue Fiat badge re-vamp

great guide thanks,
I had a broken Doblo badge to practice on, and smashed the front trying to get it apart,
so it'd be interesting to see how much HEAT is needed to get it apart without risk of damage,
Charlie
