Grand Edition Badge

Post#1 » Thu Jan 16, 2020 9:40 am

I am looking for feedback on whether or not to restore the Grand Edition badge. I am not sure if I like it without color or as it was originally.

Here are my options:
1. Restore it to original colors
2. Paint it all Black
3. Leave it alone (no color)

I attached a couple pictures for reference.

Price is around $350 for 2 new badges so I am probably going to go with an enamel restoration.

If you're going for a Pur/Professional look I would personally exclude them all together..

On eBay, there is a copy from India that is pretty inexpensive.

I am thinking I may incorporate them somewhere else on the truck. Maybe on the rear? Maybe leave them off. Thanks for all the feedback so far.
