Default shaved dem badges

allright so i got bored and shaved the "Oldsmobile" badge of the trunk and the "GL" badges off both fenders...im contemplating shaving the Olds logo off the hood but i havent yet, i know the car is very dirty..with the exception of the areas i polised after removing the badge...so the pics arent the greatest but enjoy...

the back-end looks much cleaner now, and the Intrigue lettering is built into the trunk, but i didnt want to shave it anyway...back end looks more balanced because it isnt thrown off by "Oldsmobile"...

i havent actually done this yet, its a Paint masterpiece for the time being so try not to focus on the little patch of mismatched paint, just take it in as a whole and give some feedback as to whether or not i should remove the front badge.

I would leave the front badge personally. The rest of the badges do look better removed though.

I'd lose the front plate while you're at it.

None of the cool states have front plates.

not a bad idea, but im not sure where you mean exactly, between the headlights has a different curvature than the hood i believe (emblem is curved) and if you meant farther down the license plate would have to go and thats a waaaay different curve...but i agree that would be very schway.

i agree that it would look better there, but like i said i dont believe that has the same curvature as the hood does so it wouldnt fit smoothly..ill look into it though.
