looks good! you've got a plush too!!
I thought the one on the back was attached to the body....meaning there would be holes behind it....I know the front one is double stick taped on....someone suggested using fishing line to get it off.....but it seems since the back one is attached inside the body it might be a bit more difficult.No Limitz Ind said:That is the awesome thing about these. You can do them how ever you want and still make it look good. The rear emblem is double sided on there. It is kinda a pain to get off. You just need to slide something between it, I used a plastic scraper. Like the rubber body ones. Bondo spreaders is what they are called. Then you can just put new double sided tape on it and reattach it. The red stripe will help accent the red wheels for sure.
We are hoping to have the logo, LED's and pin stripe done by December 7th since we have a show out here....will post pics once we are done.TartanJack said:Looks good. I'll be curious as to the finished look.
As for the emblems . . .
The holes are install guides and attachment is by stickum/adhesive. It is the same black stuff as the xB logo. Fishing line or dental floss are good at getting them off. If you plan to reuse, just be VERY careful for to "snap" them or bend the sheetmetal getting off the rear Scion logo.
As for the grill one, I would pop the grill off and them carefully remove the logo. I used a flat-head screw driver "butt" to push the rear tabs from the back and the flat head to push the emblem itself up from the grill plastic. Just take your time, be patient, and try to keep everything level as it comes up (one side gets too far out compared to another).
They should all be easily removable, paintable, and replaceable.

Down the side of the doors? I must be tired because I am not understanding what you mean? We are going to do about a 1 inch stripe down the whole side of the car and at the end it is going to be a bit jagged, like my swoosh for my Avon logo is...Capt Richard said:Im old fashioned and like body side molding. I hate getting my doors dinged up so might I suggest a red 1-1 1/2 inch stripe down the side of the doors. I jsut ordered one to match the overall color but you could speck any color and have it painted on the right size molding. I found a good price at Zetaproducts. They were around 120 with shipping vers almost $300. elsewhere.
I like the fast that its stands out in the crowd. As for paint you could walk a car lot and find your color then send the the paint code for a ford but you order the Scion Xb kit.
Oh I know that....I guess if anything we would be considered "mild". But soooo many more cars are definitely better than ours. For example...I have 2 cracks in the windshield....I will fix them eventually....when it becomes close to being illegal....I figure what's the point right now since this windshield seems to be a rock magnet.....now if it was a show car...I would have replaced by now....but don't have the funds to keep replacing.... And need to work on the rock chips ALL over the front... Got the touch up paint...just need to make it happen.Hellen4Wheels said:Just because it's a daily driver does not mean it can't be a show car. There are many "show" cars that get driven to work. The only difference is that it takes a little longer to get one clean enough to show when you drive it every day.
Gotta love the box!
Well, I haven't used it yet...not sure how to apply and want to get rock chips repaired first. I got it from Griots Garage...but it was a special deal for $3 a can.....so I bought 2 of them...in retrospect should have bought more...Shancopp said:avonlady....where'd you get your spray on bra and how much was it if I may ask. Are you happy with it? How does the edge look..does it get really dirty around it? I called Ziebart and it was 500 there.
