I went to home depot and in thier aisle with all the wood glue and such i found this plastic to plastic weld. It was like $4.49 for the bottle and you just mix it together and apply to the back of the letters. And stick them on. I recomend mixing it and waitting a couple of minutes before trying to put it on the letters and the grill that way it really starts to get tacky. otherwise you will have to hold each letter on the grill for a while before it actually sticks enough to let go with out it falling off. They come off with relitive easy if you need to move them. Because there is not a flat surface behind it, with a tiny bit of force you can pop them off. But they dont come off in normal driving conditions. Ive had mine on for a couple of months through, snow, freezeing rain, rain, basically anything NH has to throw at it and well its still on strong.

I like the way you added the focus to the front like that.

I absolutely love the rebadge. Kudos to you for the idea sir. If I were to do that on my Vista Blue Focus what color should I do the letters in? White? Red?

Nice! I was going to do this as soon as it's warm enough out to paint. I still wasn't sure if I was going with flat or gloss, now I know, flat all the way. I think I might try something out with the plastic trim underneath though.
