SVTF decal replacement?

SVT owners, you know that bright chrome shiny PLASTIC stick-on 3-D emblem that is on the rear hatch of your SVTF? You know the one that after a few good washings of the car starts to peel off or breaks off?
Yes, I know you can buy a new one on Ebay, priced anywhere from $10.00 plus shipping to as high as $17.99 plus shipping. Heck, I have two replacements sitting in a drawer just awaiting there opportunity to see the light of day, be subjected to the elements and peel or break once a car mit snags it during a good hand washing.
Now here is the question, if someone were to make a look alike replacement for this emblem, but in a decal form available in various colors would anyone be interested in replacing their original or damaged piece? I figure the price would run somewhere around $6 to $7 shipped.
No, I am not selling these, I have thought about having one made for my Screaming Yellow SVTF in black. Just curious as to if anyone else would be interested?

Go on E-bay and buy one for a Cobra or Lightning. They are way nicer than the ones that come on the Focus. I looked to see if they had one up and to my surprise they don't. I'm sure they'll have one on there soon. They are nice, they're thick crome plastic type stuff not a floppy rubber type thing that came with the SVT. Also here is a link to a new Focus SVT decal thing if you want to go that way.

I wash my car with only a lambs wool mit and plenty of car wash shampoo. However the very small end of the word focus tends to get caught under the mit and has pulled back. As I stated, I have two factory replacements I can stick on. But I was looking for a more permanent fix to the problem. One fix was just remove the emblem, replace it with an OEM emblem, the other is to have a decal made that would match but in black (black looks great on the yellow).

I see. The word "Focus" somehow disappeared from the tail of my car some time ago. Currently I have the original SVT badge and it looks fine, also have a Piranha badge that gets put on when I get home in January. I think it was mentioned above but if you are looking at emblem replacement I'd say go with the SVT from a Cobra as they just look much more business like. I don't think a decal is going to do the car justice.

Strange as it may sound, I would prefer to either keep it Pure SVT focus. I have owned 3 Lightnings, and a Cobra and yet by far the most enjoyable has been the SVTF. Not the fastest nor the one that has gotten the most attention, but bang for the buck and pure all around driving pleasure the SVTF is hands down a bargain sweet pleasure to own.
So yes while the Lightning and Cobra may have a nicer, heavier set of badges, I prefer not to cross breed parts. Even though as a Focus SVT owner who feels sometimes snubbed by SVT because the Focus is not looked upon as a true SVT by the purest. I'll keep smiling while I drive past gas station after gas station, getting 36+MPG on the highway and smile even bigger while I am driving the back road twisties hard and still getting better than 24MPG.
