Your Opinion: 05 ZX4 Badge?

i have been looking at the 05 Focus, and i have decided i really like the look of the badging on the back of the car.

So here is my thought.... I am considering debadging my focus and adding the 05 ZX4 badge to my trunk (in the stock location)

The problem is that i dont like the way the silver badging looks on my gold focus. so if i do this, i am considering painting it.

So, what is your opinion. Should i debadge it and leave it that way. Should I paint the ZX4 badge blue (to match my FW.net stickers, my USAF sticker, my shorty antenna, and my plans for the interior) Should i paint the ZX4 badge gold to match my car and give it a kind of subtle look? Should i paint it black to match my hood trim piece and side mouldings? or should i throw on the silver badge?


If you dont know what the 05 ZX4 badge looks like, take a look at it here

I can see how the silver might not look so great on gold, but my concern with painting would be how well it would adhere to the badge... they don't seem like they'd be welcome to the idea. If you oculd pull it off nicely, I'd go with a blue badge since that's you theme.

I personally like mine debadged complately cause it looks sleek and wax doesn't get caught around the letters when I detail it. Plus if I ever took them off or they fell off later, my paint wouldn't have faded around them (something the Arizona Beige might not do as much as twilight blue)!
