    Fiesta logo looks good in black.

    Where'd you get these or did you just paint the factory ones?

    Plastidipped the ST logo in place. Removed the Fiesta logo and plastidipped that off the car, then retaped it back on.

    What did you tape it back on with? It looks good.

    I used high strength double-sided tape. I cleaned the back side of the logo and put 2 strips to completely cover the back and then used a sharp utility knife to trim off all the exposed tape. It was a bit tedious, but I'm happy with the result. I then sprayed 3 coats of Plastidip and let it cure for a couple hours. I had used dental floss to get the logo off, so there was a fair amount of tape residue on the car. I marked where the logo was on the car with painters tape so I could get it back in the same spot. I used a 250W work light on the back of the car to soften the remaining old tape and peel it off. I cleaned the area with spray detailer and then stuck the Logo back on. The work light had warmed the back of the car nicely so the tape adhered quite well.

    Looks great, thinking white would look great on performance blue.

    I think you're right. Plastidip does com in white too! Silver would also look good. I had the silver tattoo graphics on my blue 2011 SES and I really liked it.

    Wow! That was a real senior moment. They start out as chrome! I guess I looked at mine long enough that I lost track!

    WScott - you ever get down to the Meadowlands for AutoX ?

    Never been down there. I did several AutoX events here in CT and looking forward to doing many more. I'm not averse to travelling a bit if we can get several folks together and have our own little FiST competition within an AutoX event. Lets see how many we can pull together and pick a date.

    We should probably open a new thread in the AutoX section. Lord knows I've taken more than my share of threads off topic. I should probably at least TRY to keep my own thread on topic! :egg:

    Many thanks to Dave for the custom ST logos for my wheel center caps. I now have zero chrome left on the car. :)
