"Custom" hood badge.

I just wanted to share a few photos of the temporary badge I made for my E350.

I purchased a flat OEM badge but I didn't realize until I got it that it sits on top, or NOT flush, of the hood. I don't really like that look. I also can't justify spending $100-$150 for a custom badge knowing I have the ability to make something more suited to my taste.

At any rate, I was able to make this badge for now. I am working on a custom acrylic badge but in the meantime, this will do.

In my opinion only, it looks better flush and color matched. I also have the color matched grille installed. Enjoy.

**** note: I know the car is horribly dirty, just picked it up after sitting in a body shop all weekend because some effing ahole punched a bunch of dents in the hood. I'll get cleaned up nice later today
