Black badges

Post by Marrow » Mon May 20, 2019 5:51 pm

Hi quick question I want to fit black badges. But how do you line them up are they stuck on plastic backing to keep the alignment right for application in one go a bit like decals or do you have to align them individually one by one ? So the a then the 4 then the 5

Does that make sense ??

I left a really faint outline of the badges I removed and individually put each letter on

I stuck some masking tape below the ones I took off & marked the base of each letter on it with a pencil

Can I get your old "T" on the driver's side wing?
Willing to pay!

Pulled it off washing the car? I’ve seen Mercedes in showrooms with them missing. You’d think they’d have figured it out by now

I got mine from all over as I was one of the first bunch to change them all so I got some from China & the star from Australia.

Automotive Passion do them - https://automotivepassion.net/cat/aclass/?orderby=price

But then scouring eBay might get you a better deal. Just make sure the centre star is the right one as for the A45 it’s slightly curved to sit flush with the lines of the boot lid Image
