red H badge

Would these badges look good in red on a storm silver fit?

the red badges will look great on the storm silver. Just be sure to get a dremel and shave down the plastic that the stock emblem is set on. The stock emblem has a slight curve where as the type r emblem doesn't. This way it will fit flush on there. Do it. It looks dope!!!

I used your method to remove the front grill. My grill had two screws along with the tabs you pointed out. There was one screw on each side. Thanks for the how to.

Nice, but the "Red Emblem" has always been done and needs to go IMHO. I did mine this way, for a clean look... Color-matched sport ggrill and JDM RS badge

For the front emblem I used a flat piece of chrome PVC used for chrome rocker panels on like Cadillacs and such.
What is this "flat piece of chrome pvc" you speak of?

Front emblem tomorrow. You can use any 3D di-noc CF vinyl, squeegee (not necessary), razor blade and hair dryer. My is 3M vinyl. Ebay is full of that stuff.



Emblem is not so easy, but bigger and simpler shapes - walk in the park.
