Re-badging

Decided to de-badge my 13 limited, but then saw a post on a SHO forum where someone removed and rearranged the Taurus badge and I thought it looked tight. So here's my attempt and I also hit them with a nice red metallic. Found this awesome site www.adhesivetemplates.com. They sell exact cutouts to re apply badges. Also thought it would look sick if I badged it roush!!

Sry the sun was super bright behind me...

If I was going to de-badge, the first thing I'd recommend you getting rid of is what I'm guessing is the dealership emblem.

It's the first thing I pulled off when I got my car home. Looks nice on the back of my lawn tractor.

I performed this mod myself, on my 2010 SHO about 5yrs or so ago, & wrote up a "How-To" tutorial on it.

It has seen some revisions over the years, chronologically from oldest to current:







Copying is the biggest form of flattery.

Glad you guys followed my lead. LOL.

They each look good on your bull's as well.

Looks good. I like the contrast with the red.

After seeing some threads on here about de/re badge I took mine off last fall and have been playing with the idea of adding back just the LTD from the LIMITED lettering... I like the look of it being clean but I think just a simple LTD will also look good.

It's the small details to personalize our rides that make them ours.

Agreed...I believe I even asked or p.m.'d you about spacing back 4 years ago....lol.
