232 badge

i wanted one for my trunk so i wont look like a "poser" .i went to the site that makes the 232 badge but they were completly sold out. so i found a new set on ebay up for auction. a 3 piece set (2 fender emblems, 1 trunk emblem). i bid on it and won it for 5 bucks free shipping. should i just use the trunk one i had originally wanted and sell the other 2 fender ones ? or remove my running ponys ( which r starting to fade and need a re touch of paint) for the 232 emblems? any opinions guys ?

Re: 232 badge

I went with the "black out" look on the *** end of the car. Also found a set of very old running pony emblems that are chrome/black for the sides.
Chrome/Black Pony:
"Black Out" *** End:: Black 3rd brake light, black bumper inserts, black 3.8 emblem, black Ford logo, ect.....

I personally think its pretty cool. I personally dont like that its a decal. If you can get an emblem made they would be badass

the bigger one is the one with the flat black background. the smaller one doesnt have any background

its not really a decal. at least it doesnt feel like it . decals are more like stickers and this one isnt a stickr. it just needs the 3M tape in the back to hold it on. and the quality of this feels amazing !! autobadges did a good job with these. it feels like the same style as the gt badge.
