Since I couldn't find the C3 fender badge in red, just had to do it myself, got tired of waiting for the vendor to produce a colored C3 badge.........sooooooo, anyhow, I took a stab at it, I think it turned out OK, got the desired result. Wanted to put one in the rear, but there isn't a desirable flat spot anywhere back there, the badge is pot metal, slightest bend, I'd break it.

Norm I like it a lot! It looks really nice on your car. The little touches of red really set it off. I'm thinking seriously about doing the chrome one on mine, since the red looks so good on yours. :)

Looks great and you appear to have done it right. Kudos to you and I love the look. Did you paint the red on the wheel as well or was it done professionally? Great touches. Thanks for the looks and can you share a photo of the complete car with this look? Cheers:

PS: Sorry, just saw the full photo. Thanks...

I painted the wheels with the Beugler Pinstriping Tool, somewhat simple to do, just have to take your time.

Thanks guys for all the nice compliments. I am quite happy with the way my own little personal touch mods have turned out, receive many compliments in person as those of yours.
