Suggestions: Fender Emblem

Removed my GT emblems because I didn't like the 05 - 09 design. I need to find a replacement emblem to cover the holes.

I've been considering the following emblems, but wanted expert opinion before moving forward w/purchase. These are options from what I found via eBay and google search. I'm not wowed by any, but need something. I liked the 281 Oval Emblem best, but couldn't find for sale anywhere.

Only options found
1. 281 emblem
2. 281 High Performance
3. Older model GT emblem

Thoughts guys? Thanks in advance for help.

Thanks BP. Someone had mentioned on this forum that the Pwrd by Ford emblem wasn't as nice as the one found on Shelby GT's. If I could purchase the current original, I would go that route.

Fair enough. I don't actually own one of those emblems so I really can't judge.

Have you checked out Blue Oval Industries?
Their performance parts are total sh*t but they have the biggest emblem selection I've found yet. 141 unique emblems.

The feedback on those emblems from am says they fade and crack after just a year if they are on the outside of the car.

Appreciate the feedback. If I can't find anything, I'll prob blackout the original GT emblems. I've seen a few examples posted on the forum and they look much better than original. Keeping that in my back pocket for now. Still looking.

Plasti dip works great. An u can power wash it and it stays on but if you get tired of it just peel it right off!

You've been doing a lot of work, but considering selling? Hope you are able to get what you ask. It looks great

I'm afraid there's no way I'd get what I need to pay it off this soon. But you never know
