Was really bored today so I thought I'd get started on Project Budget. I'll mount them later tonight and get some more pictures up...sans AWD badge.<p><IMG SRC="http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b19/BtownVolvo/DSC_0614.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>Also, I was outside with the roommate and got bored...again. Obviously this is a mock up and not permanent (or temporary for that matter). Thought this looked kinda cool. Might try to glass something similar?? <IMG SRC="http://209.85.122.83/2/110/0/e8647//e8647.gif" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b19/BtownVolvo/DSC_0611.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b19/BtownVolvo/DSC_0610.jpg" BORDER="0"><p><IMG SRC="http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b19/BtownVolvo/DSC_0607.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>I'll get the finished badge pics up later. I think I might try a different location for them.<br>

Just do a vinyl eyebrow. Cheap, easy, and it will last for years if applied correctly. Mine look great and they have been on for about 8 months, lasted through winter without a problem.<br>Like the design!<br> Did you get the AWD/FWD mess figured out?

Mine are body color. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> Oracal makes different vinyls in a ton of colors, the specific one I used has over 70 color options so chances are there is a very close match to most of our body colors. I like them more than the plastic ones because they are flush with the light and give it a stock look.

Re: (genjy)

Ive only had to do it once and i just eyeballed it comparing it to another S40 parked right next to it. Best idea would be to lay out where they need to be by using painters tape to mark the x and y axis.

Re: (BtownVolvo)

Can't wait to see it. I've been thinking about blacking out my emblem. Did you prep them at all?
