My "weekend" mod, better than a debadge

Took a few minutes this weekend to try something. So far it's turned out well. I'll post some pics later after I put them back on the car.



Yeah, those are toothpicks hot glued to the back of the letters.

::UPDATE::


They're dry enough to touch, but I don't want to glue them on yet. They need to cure before I expose them to the "elements". Heres a teaser of them laying on the bumper.



::Update::

Did a dry fit today. I really like them. They're not lined up perfectly, but close enough for a quick pic



::Update::
Finished!



Rest of the pics are at the end of the thread

I liked the debadged look, but I kinda missed having the "FOCUS" on the back. Thought this might look good. I had an extra set of letters laying around. They're almost dry enough to touch. I'll hold them up to the car in a bit and take some pics

Nice idea mate! Might have to give this a go with the my standard Focus badge! Can I ask what stuff you using to stick it back onto the car?

Cheers

Updated the first post with a picture of them laying on the bumper.
I'm not glueing them on yet, I'll wait a few days for them to cure.

@ Shilz
I've got this black hot glue that came with "The Ding King". (Don't judge me because I own a ding king...). Its solid enough to pull metal back into place, so I figure it's solid enough to hold on plastic letters.

i debadged my "focus" and left on the "zx3", then painted the zx3 black.. but it's not the same cause your car is black.. should look cool when you put it on.,.



Shilz-- we demand a thread showing off pics of your car immediately!!

darkfire1986 - Could do with an update if you got it installed? I was tempted to get a new 'Focus' badge today to give it a try but might just wait and see how your's turns out. I think it's gonna look sweet anyway! [:D]

j-zetec_pr - nice find! lol [:D] i've updated the pics as well.

I don't have them back on yet. It's still raining. The closest thing I have is the pic of them laying on the bumper and trunk. It should clear up tomorrow, so I'll try to get them on by then

hard to tell if its a gloss or flat black? i think flat would give it that "ninja" look and gloss may blend to much... we will see when its done... great idea!
