Big R restoration, saving the badges


Guys, I have seen a number of rewrapped Big R kits that seem to have had the badges saved and of course I've also seen a number of mangled badges. They were a self adhesive foil with the vent hole through the middle. Anyone have experience/know how with removing and saving the badges while doing a rewrap on Big R / XP8 kits?
ps: Just noticed there is a supplier of reproduction badges, and a few outrageously priced originals around, not looking for those options! Thanks

Re: Big R restoration, saving the badges


More than on method, but here is what I did for mine.

Remove the vent - I tapped it out with a small screw driver from the inside. Other methods an facebook. Will need a new one this method.

Heat the badge with a hair dryer. Gently lift a corner and work a piece of unwaxed dental floss under a corner and saw back and forth gently and slowly. Continue heating the badge and then continue with the dental floss. It might have a tendency to break the floss, so renew as needed.

I did this on several sets without damaging the backing and could reuse them later.
