    I totally agree and appreciate your respect for the product. And as mentioned to each his own. I would never black out the Ford emblem on one of my vehicles (or even change the colors) but I have always respected other peoples property and especially their vehicles. I might frown if I saw your car in person but I'm not going to key the side!

    There no anti-Chevy chest beating because Chevy doesn't make a true FiST competitor. ;)

    If you bleed Ford blue, look away now!

    Dave, you're the best! These vinyl decals are awesome -- sure a couple tweaks could be made, but I'm super happy with them. As you said, you don't really see the embossed logo (beneath it) unless you look for it. I'm very impressed with your craftsmanship! You should start selling "Decals by Taz"!

    This is better than my blacked out setup with Plastidip. This preserves a small ring of chrome and subdues the logo. Once you look closely, you see that it's in fact black on black. It's not for everyone, but I dig it. Thank you again! :)

    I am glad you like them.
    I forgot to tell you with the installation they are guaranteed.
    If they ever blow off, I will replace them.

    Thanks, I will take you up on that.
    We just need to come up with another get together or drive.

    I just came up with a better way to assemble these.
    Also an easier way to finish the install process.

    I'd like to hear about it. This batch is sticking well, but I was worried about the front one for a bit. I think it's good now, but a few bubbles on the edge threatened to ruin the seal. Like you said, it eventually sets up.

    The rear has more curvature, but seems to stick better too -- it "pulls over" better.

    Would it help line up over the embossed portion if the oval portion were bigger?

    You have an easy way with this stuff, and I know others would like to see a how-to thread!

    It is almost impossible to not see the levels of the original badge.
    Also as with ant vinyl application you may get very small bubbles.
    These bubbles usually go away by themselves after a few days.
    Persistent bubbles can be removed with a very fine needle.

    It is also possible that a small piece of debris got between or under the vinyl.
    Either way I can fix it or replace it the next time we meet.

    Okay, I definitely accept your advice and comments as accurate -- I'm just working through this as a first time user of vinyl. This gets me back to thinking about a matte black or matte clear bra for portions of the front of the car.

    I used to put this on all of my cars, then I had a couple experiences with yellowing and such and decided against it. Of course, this car is black and not susceptible to that problem. The forward edge of the hood and the bottom of the front spoiler are the areas that get beat up. It's also the easiest to apply, so I might start there.

    The new materials today are much better.
    You may not have noticed, but the complete front and hood of my car has clear bra.
    The material I used IS more expensive, but is warrantied for TEN years.

    You are also welcome to come up here if you need help with any install.

    Thank you, I may just drop in on you! :)

    It took me a while to notice that bra -- good thing. It's only noticeable as a texture in certain angles.
