Default I modified my Grand Sport emblems...

Well, someone had to be the crazy one to try it, guess I'm one of if not the first. I didn't care for the GS emblems on my particular color combo so I picked up a spare set and tried a few things on them. This is what I ended up with.

This is how they look on the GS.

As you can see, I went with cyber grey paint on the emblem to try and match the hash marks. The paint color came out darker on the emblem but it is ok for now.

I can do a write-up on the process later if there is enough interest. First I wanted to gauge reaction as one never knows how mods like this are going to be judged.

I have been toying with the same thing. I was thinking black chrome with red G and S and silver to match the decals.

Nice job though. How much did the extra GS emblems run you?

Not bad, nice job.....

Now, if you can only color coordinate the brake dust on your rims (or get ceramic pads), you'd be in business.....: *****:

Looks good. I'm always amazed when people can get the inset lettering to look right, as I've never been able to do that.

Are you sure the stripes are Cyber Grey? They look pretty close to the Comp Grey wheels.

Is it just me, or does the wheel look tiny in the wheel well to anyone else?
