RS or SS badging
 
what do you guys think of getting a custom made RS rear badge that lights up at night with like an LED or something like that inside? i just thought of it cause i saw one of the members video of the Camaro at the texas fair at night and realized you could not see the badging.

I have plans to make my bowties light up. I think it would look good lit up between those halos.

i dont want people to be able to see any of my extra badges when we race at night

I've thought about this also. A clear acrylic SS badge centered on the front grill backed by white LED's between the halos would be hot.

I'd like to see that. I've seen other badges lit up before w/ LED's.

That would be cool. The Guigaro Mustang had the Mustang emblem light up with LED's. it was sweet.

lighted bowties and badges would look amazing at night

ucla1ove3 09-28-2008 03:15 PM

especially if you have like a darker colored car. it would look SWEETTTT

I would like to see lighted badges, although I probably wouldn't put any on my Camaro.

Ow SS all the way Baby.

how do you take off/ switch the badges without any visiable residue or impressions from the previous badge?

TAG UR IT 09-29-2008 01:13 AM

heat up the glue w/ a hair dryer and use dental floss to peel off the letters. there will be a little sticky stuff left over on the paint. rub it off or use a cleaner of sorts to remove it. be careful not to damage the paint. make sure you wax over the area so it's still protected.....unless you are putting other letters on....in which case you'd clean up the area and put on new letters and then wax around them...

BBfan24 09-29-2008 01:16 AM

that sounds easy enough. but what about the grill? isn't there a huge indentation from the bowtie left there?

grill inserts ftw

well now, you guys just make my life so much easier. if i asked a shop they probably would have told me they needed to do the detailing and more than likely would have charged me an arm and a leg for it

ucla1ove3 09-29-2008 10:50 PM

if they were lighted what exactly would you wire the power to or rather how? new to the whole modding of cars scene, im learning and asking as much as i can :)

TheMadHatter99 09-30-2008 06:50 AM

I am intrigued by this idea. A really dark car would look incredible at night w/ halos and a very subtle glowing SS or bowtie.

Of course I'm one of the few around here who don't think exterior ground lighting looks bad so you might not want to take my opinion.

i know its a ford but i saw a really nice done up ford ranger at the big car show in jersey 2 weeks ago its all along the board walk its pretty cool, but anyways the truck had blue LEDs round the front and back ford emblems and they were in the actual emblem so it looked very clean and like it should belong forgot to take a picture though :mad0259:
