Emblem pros question, 1LE badges

i need some help, ive seen a few of you with the 1LE badges from emblem pros, they look great! im wondering what sizes i need? im wanting to replace the back "SS" and the front grill "SS" are they the same size? emblem pros has 3 different sizes and i want them to resemble the size of the factory ss badge size as much as possible.

heres what the website says

"Our first size (SMALL) is .5" tall by approximately 3.25" depending on spacing, and costs $27.99 each


Our second size (MEDIUM) is .66" tall by approximately 4.6" depending on spacing, and costs $32.99 each


Our third size (LARGE) is 1" tall by approximately 7" depending on spacing, and costs $37.99 each"


i would go try to half ass measure the ss badges myself but for 1. im an idiot and 2. i dont get to pick it up for another week
any help/pic/advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks!



and i was gonna post this in cosmetics/mods section but ive seen all the 1LE/emblem pro threads here, thought id have better luck.

The grill will take the small the hood will take two large and the trunk will take one medium. Hope this helps. To place on hood its 4" from the edge, 1" from the top and bottom.

I think it would look better with the SS removed and placed on the right side in the factory placement. Looks busy with emblems on both sides, especially with the bowtie in the middle too. No offense meant, just my opinion.

ya im with the minimalistic approach, i want to get rid of both the ss badges and replace them with small subtle 1LE badges, also prolly do a bowtie delete too, or matte black them at least, big gold donks. its like a rly hot curvy girl with a FAT over sized tongue piercing , its gotti and trashy to me kinda.

On the hood I used painters tape to align the letters. Go slow and triple measure.

I removed the bowtie from the front and rear. Installed heritage Grill and added an SS to center. Currently I have the 1LE badges on the hood. I'm thinking about adding the 1LE to the right rear with no bowtie.

Its hard to tell in all the pictures.

Does anyone have the "ONYX Black Mirror Stainless Steel" installed on their hoods (or any black part of the car fro that matter) wondering if because its mirrored its still visible on the black

I was thinking about doing Onyx Black with Red "1" for the rear deck lid and not sure what colors to do for the hood and the front grill...

My car is Crystal Red Tintcoat btw...

thoughts?

Not I de-badged the front and back of the SS emblem. Sorry didn't see your post until now.

Is the front one a single piece or individual letters?

Just curious, which of the primary colors (ONYX Black Mirror Stainless Steel, gloss black or flat black) looks the best for the hood? Thanks.

If your RS chrome strip above the headlights and grill is still there, the stainless will fit in just fine. Otherwise, it might look out of place.

Yellow is a tough color to have things look right, I can understand your thinking. Give roger a call. I'm sure there are others with yellow cars that have had cool ideas, and he can do just about anything. Very laid back and honest person to deal with.
