Debadging the back?

Anyone done this? Its very cluttered back there.

I did it on my VW, and it looks good (only left the "TDI"). Im thinking of removing everything but the "3.6R" - or what I leave, blacking out with plasti dip

I stripped all of the lettering off both cars. Removing the 6-Star badge from the rear garnish on Frankie required body filler and paint afterward. I left 6-Star on the garnish panel badge on Cherry.

Personally, I like it when someone walks up to Frankie (completely debadged) and all they want to know what the h*ll car she is. I like that, keep them guessing.

Think I may debadge everything but the 3.6R, and put an LP badge back there under it.

If I can find a single LP badge

I've thought it would be funny to debadge it, change the Subaru oval to a Ford Blue Oval and put a Taurus badge on it. After all the grills are very similar.

I sprayed Frankie's entire rear gate Matte Black, she's naked except the paint.
I always wanted to get Subaru letters and badge her as

XRTXT


Right side. I never did. Cherry is naked in back save one XRT/Extreme Racing Tuning Decal and the 6-Star medallion. I like the LP idea... I put the BC (BC coil overs) letters on my grill for one of the shows Frankie went to.

That's for true. I get fooled all the time, the Fords look like Leggy's

@Kb3tzt

I like it since the Imprezza 2.5R ..S and Focus RS are both decent tossers. The deep end is the good end.
