Silhouette of Emblems on Paint after Debadging

I debadged the truck yesterday and there is a barely noticeable "Toyota" silhouette on the paint on the front doors where the emblem was after all the goo gone was washed away with any of the adhesive residue.

What can be done to fix this? Would hitting it with compound work?

That is ghosting caused my paint aging. Underneath the lettering had no UV damage or other wear to the color. I dont believe its fixable, as it is a paint color issue, but I'm not the smart guy here and maybe someone else has a way to minimize the appearance.

I get that it's ghosting, but I'm wondering if there is a way to make it look less noticeable.

Detailing it might help make it less noticable. Basically, wash, clay bar, polish and wax. The polish might help even things out a bit but if it's ghosting, there's not much you can do. Detailing helps clean the clear coat, ghosting develops because the paint under the clearcoat hasn't faded like the surrounding paint.

That makes sense. Thanks. I'll give it a try.

What is the purpose of "debadging"? I've heard it couple of times on this forum already.

DA polisher and some V36 or 34 from chemical guys on a orange pad, will give a nice cut and even those areas out, and you will never see them..
