Default New badge / emblem on my SSEi 56k...dunno - your call

I just put a new badge on my car, I picked it up on Ebay for 15.00 It was the type with posts where you had to drill holes through the body and put retaining clips on the other side but given my car has a "no hole" policy I took out the dremel and with the carbon blade cut the posts off and smoothed them over.

Then out comes the epoxy and getting my wife to do the eyeball work I stuck it on. Then for the following 2 hours worked to get the excess cement off that squished out from all the edges of the badge, so when you see the pictures you'll see why it took me two hours.

Comments welcome






The following picture is where I first wanted to put it but I couldn't get the emblem formed to the contour of the body well enough so I had to settle for where it is now.

Cool, 15 bucks is a nice price; I swear I had seen those on some site going for $50.
