Default Opinions Requested

G'day All,
I am going to put some "350" badges on my bonnet and am struggling to decide where to place them, so I'm asking
my fellow CF members for their opinions based on the three photos below. I don't need long winded replies, just select
a number and let me know.
TIA Mark

My opinion is to leave them off, fill the holes and go badge-less.

I have 2 hoods. One says L48, other L82. Thinking of cutting the second numbers off and switching them...

If you found a '350' emblem that was not so big...then going back up to the front would be fine due to it might not be like so much...;'in your face' and standing out and look cleaner.

I would use 3M double sided light gray tape on them so if you want to move them you can and not have any holes needing to be drilled in the hood..

Did you miss

I originally place my badge on the #2 position but later moved them to #1 after modifying the hood for RamJet and adding LT-1 stripes





Your car your choice but I like 1

I think the #3 position might look better if you moved it a few inches ahead like GM did on the later C3s:
