2012 Volkswagen Beetle Long Term Road Test

2012 Volkswagen Beetle: Emblem Love

June 19, 2012

A layer of schmutz had collected on our Beetle's hatch-opener/emblem. So last night, inspired by Jay's paean to elbow grease and our freshened-up story on how to wash and wax your car, I pulled out a bottle of high-shine protectant for vinyl, rubber and plastic and tidied up the emblem.

I employed a cotton swab and a tiny little pointy thing (OK, a bamboo skewer) under a thin cloth to get into the corners.

Much better, don't you think?
