Damnit Pete, your stuff is too large!<p>No pictures, but I kept the "R" "AWD" and "VOLVO" - I like it.<p>Pete, I like the "V" in the back <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"><p>I also <i>really</i> like the VR up front.

De-Badged Rear:<br><IMG SRC="http://aboutstephen.com/pictures/albums/userpics/10001/RanchPic5.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Side Shot Showing Custom Done Center Caps. I had asked around who had the IPD ones but no-one had in stock, so I did the next best thing, pulled off the center caps. Sprayed them with silver paint lightly, then clear coat. The result: a 3D effect because of the clear dome. If you look close enough you can see a faint outline of the original Volvo emblem:<p><IMG SRC="http://aboutstephen.com/pictures/albums/userpics/10001/RanchPic3.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Now, does anyone have any idea what to do with the FRONT Volvo emblem without being cheezy? I was going to do a greek flag (because I'm greek) but I thought that would be too over the top. My friend suggested to move the R to the middle but I also don't like that. <p>Any ideas on what you did with your grille?

<IMG SRC="http://img22.imageshack.us/img22/2738/trimrear.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Tough to see, but that's an 'R' with a blue/yellow Takspeed badge to the left of it. Unlike the suggested positioning of the Takspeed badge, I spaced them out about 1/8". Looks great <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">.<p>Getting rid of the 'S60' and 'AWD' lettering really cleans up the rear.<p>Trygve<br>

As a recent towing victim I must toss in my 2 cents in that I really think you guys should leave the AWD badging on. I mean it might not matter, the tow truck might just tow it as a FWD car anyway and supposedly Haldex is disengaged when the car is off, but it might mean the difference between getting it towed right (i.e. on a flatbed) and not so right (i.e. hitched).

I didn't paint the sash, I think it looks good 'floating'. I moved the R around a few times but it never felt right except when in the stock location.
