RS/SS Dash Badge

I wanted something in there, but was not going to pay $50.

So I made one. When printed on photo paper, and covered with clear laminate tape, it does not look too tacky...

Printed at 300dpi, then trimmed, they fit the contour perfectly.
Clear ones too in case you want your own colors.

it looks pretty good for diy... personally id of just taken the SS as 1 strip( meaning w/o the bottom and top checkered effect) just wouldve been harder to center since it wouldnt be a fitted match on the top/bottom........if u get what im asying

I was wondering where they put the hud buttons. That's a nice, blind location for it

Nice job on the DIY dash plaque. I ordered my custom plaque from emblempros (I have no skills). Also ordered my custom mirrored underhood plaque from them just yesterday too.

Thank you. It's a little hack but I did not feel like spending money on one.

It's a nice DIY job, but we do have a budget version that does not cost $50. However, the other ones are $20 from us, and come with a decent amount of car info on them, they are just not customizeable like the premium versions. But, for simple logos and info, you don't have to spend $50.

The other thing is that due to where it is located you never even see it. I only did it because I was bored at work one day last week

Is it possible you could do a red RS on a black background? Also what settings did you print it in?

It's a carryover from the geeked out Honda Pilot I traded in. I need to figure out what I am going to change it to.

Thanks Jimmy! Between this and the others my dash plaque spot is going to look GREAT!

I really appreciate you taking the time to do these!
