Default unremovable mist from debadging

Have a peugout 206 and its used so naturally body work is good but its not great there are scratches etc but went to debadge it by pouring weak solution of white spirit over the badge to soak the adhesive the badge came off easily but now theres an awful ghostly shadow of the former badge there and a white cloudy mist over it
Tried washing it with car shampoo but no joy nothing seems to work it simply wont budge its not that noticable till go right up to it and look at it
Will an wax improve this??
Any products that will work thanks tried t cut same thing.

I have the same issue, just not as bad as yours sound. I have not really been trying to hard to remove it. Im hoping after a few washing it eventually wears off.

what causes it is the clear coat you have to buff it up to a shine

Default The peugout 206

Looked at alot of peugout 206 04 fevers but havent come across any which have the morette twin headlights which mine has when brought it.
However not sure if this is standard or not, as some pictures (google) have the headlights like this, without any other body mods some are just normal lights.
Also the fuel cap looks like a dimma fuel cap but isnt again not sure if this polished metal look is standard for the 206 1.4 fever 04.

You don't need a buffer, you can use a soft cloth with the rubbing compound, but it is a LOT more work, you'll build up your arms doing it haha.

Their also is a possibility that the solvent in the adhesive has dissolved into the paint under it and you will never get rid of the discoloration,.... sorry
