Hi There

Don't know - Just had a look at my R badge that's been in my desk drawer for the last 5 years....but I would try soaking it in this stuff

3M Scotch Weld Citrus Cleaner Spray 500ml 50098 Grease Oil Dirt Adhesive Remover | eBay

It's brilliant for removing adhesive - used it myself today on another project - I'd try giving it a good few sprays over the course of an hour, enough for it to penetrate well between the silver and the red, then trying to prise it out with a pin - it's got a bit of bend in it

Failing that - drill a couple of small holes from the rear - let loads of the same stuff penetrate into them...then try pushing from behind

What do you have in mind - some sort of SMD project?

If I can split it without breaking it, I want to illuminate it or change the colour.

I have tried this myself and ended up drilling it out with a bremhill drill bits, done the job ok, but then is the problem of inserting the leds in it, I done it but was not happy with how the leds lit up, all you saw was the individual leds and just not a single complete light source, so just slung it on the shelf and went and bought the tommy karra one. of which is great

Here you go. Soak it in the 3M stuff - 2 squirts over an hour - use a razor blade to ease up one edge





Squirt a bit more in the gap - leave it 30 seconds...ease it up a bit more - keep doing this for 4 or 5 goes - be really careful along the top as it's really thin and ....Bob's your auntie...

well done, I was going with the heat method as I put it in the oven at 120 for 5 mins and I could get some movement but I only had a terminal screwdriver but that was too fat. eBay it is then,Thankyou

Ahhh once you got the front off that was the easy bit, now you have to make room in there for some leds

Funny you should say that - I did think about it a couple of years ago - I can make PCBs, solder SMDs (small surface mount LEDs) and build sequencing circuits....my plan was to create an R with white leds on the outside and red on the inside, so the two colours could be made to light separately.....but how to make it resistant to 100+mph?...I thought about using the original R as a mould and then encasing the circuit board in clear resin....I think I even bought the stuff to do it.......

Never got round to it - think it would look good lit up, but not too sure in the daylight...

Warming it in the oven worked, I just needed a blade to remove the R. Thanks guyblue10
