I'm trying to eliminate most/all of the silver and chrome on my FSXT's exterior, so I'm curious if anyone has tried modding the badge that came with their grille. Does anyone know how the badge mounts to the 06-08 grilles? I haven't taken my grille off for a while, so I don't remember seeing rivets or clips. If it's held on by glue or double sided tape, it should come off with the help of a hair dryer. So, has anyone taken theirs off and attempted to modify it?

I'd like to design my own badge and have it cut on a waterjet or laser.

Thanks for your input.

On the Forester Sports grille, the Subaru badge is double sided taped. The Forester Sports badge is mechanically attached with 4 posts that go thru the grille & 4 metal push on washer clips to hold it in place. :wink:

I don't know if you saw my post on tinted emblems but I think red tinted emblems would look good on your car.Imageshack - p1010902z.jpg
That does look pretty nice! :) I still have "FORESTER" on the hatch - I'll have to look into doing something like that.

Thanks for the info Bobby. I already removed the Forester Sports badge and am contemplating attaching an STi one in its place.
