Question Moving focus badge to dash... ?

So I am wanting to do a de-badge on my foci.

I was thinking of moving the "Focus" badge to just above the glove box on the passanger dash...

What do you all think?

I saw one member do it with an 00-04 model and I kinda liked it.



Was also thinking of moving the "ZX5" badge into the grill.
Saw someone do that with their "Focus" badge and like that too.

Thanks for your thoughts!

I haven't to seen the "Focus" moved to the dash - could look good though. My 08' has it imprinted in the dash above the glove box. A little hard to see in this pic, it's the only one I could find. However, that's long gone as it's covered by my dash kit now.



Pics I've seen with the badge moved to the grille looked good.

Hope this member doesn't mind me barrowing the pic, but here is the one I saw...



Only it would be the 05-07 focus emblem.

badge on the grille doesn't look good IMO. Although I've also seen it done on the 00-04's so it might look better on the 05-07's. You could always take it off and then just tape it to your dash to see how it looks. If you don't like it the butt end of your car looks better anyway.

Id place it under the vent look a little better. I like the grill idea though.
