Very interested in this section of the forum, ordered my black/black MoveUp today, delivery not expected till September, so gives me plenty of time to sort simple mods.
I think the Up is a great looking car as is, already spotted on the other thread that AwesomeGTI are doing springs, I've sourced some wheels, so really a removal and recolour of the silver badges to black is my interest.
Hopefully someone has either the technical knowhow or the nerve to remove a badge and give us some advice... I did pry around the demo model in the showroom but didn't try levering anything off
Took the dealers rear window advertiser sticker off as they had placed it at the top of the rear window.. exactly where the rear road view comes in the rear view mirror ! It created a large black spot and looks far better removed
Love the dealer service, professionalism etc. and don't mind advertising their contact details.. just not by obstructing the rear view.
<div style="text-align: center;">Skoda maybe.. Lada YES.. Fiat YES..
<div style="text-align: center;">Daewoo YES [ They did it themselves ]
<div style="text-align: center;">Hyundai YES Ssang Yong is a MUST DO !!
<div style="text-align: center;">Kia DEFFO !!!
<div style="text-align: center;">
some people do a cheaper job, and buy little plastic inserts that clip into place (...though Id imagine theres none avaible for the Up! at the moment)
or some people do an Eeeeven cheaper job, and don't bother doing anything about the little semi circle, and just leave it there. which just looks lazy. (Even iftheyve got to save to have the bonnet welded or get a clip in bit, they should at least wait untilthey can have it done before sticking in a badgeless grill tsk tsk
One of very few things I'm not totally sold on in the up! is the lack of black background on the front badge (i.e. it has a body coloured background). I'm thinking of ways to 'reinstate' this on my red High up! when it comes... I suppose this might involve removing the badge and placing a black circle or decal behind... perhaps something removable, in case I don't like it after all!
I'll have to photoshop it so I can see how it would look.
Well I don't know about the Up! badges, but the Scirocco badges are stuck on with adhesive. Just heat them up with a hair-dryer to get the glue to melt enough and peel off... Then get some decent adhesive tape to glue back on once you've painted etc. It's a very popular and simple mod.
