debadging question

So picture number 2 shows what used to be on my truck. Picture number 1 shows the crap that won't come off now that I "fishlined" the letters off. I've tried paint thinner, goo gone and acetone. I was thinking it might buff out. Anybody got any suggestions?

You could get some sockmonkey decals to put over it. Or buff it and repaint that section with touch up paint.

Nice build!

It's effortless and removes it all in a few seconds, it's a little high but really kicks butt!
