Alien?

Don't you have one? or is it just a 92-95 thing?

Like DIS?

P.*. This one is not mine.. I think most of the SSEi have a supercharger oil splatter stain towards the left side....

Just as a data point, my '93 SSEi has one, printed in white (actually saying SSE rather than SSEi). The day they discontinue it will be the day _before_ I get off my butt and try to order a new one just to have as a backup...

I'm not artistically (or graphically) inclined, but this is what I managed to do

"picture to appear here when I figure out how to upload it properly"

Based on posts & what I've seen at wreckers, seems many (most?, all?) pre-92 SSE'* came with hood ins. with "SSE BONNEVILLE" lettering which (I think) matches exterior emblems. Graphic was changed for 92, and many (most?, all?) 92 & 93 SSE'* & SSEi'* came with "SSE" over a Pontiac Arrowhead inside a circle, which seems to match the grille emblem.

Also, lettered hood ins. no longer (if they ever were) available as a replacement part.

For my SSEi, I chose to go with the pre-92 concept (i.e. match the exterior emblem) so I tried to duplicate, as best I could, the front door/trunk emblem design. I'd like to know what other members think of this, should I have done what I did, or gone with the arrowhead with SSEi over it, or duplicated the factory design exactly, or just not messed with it.

Thanks
