A set of King springs is around $260.
Not sure on the badge prices.....try a search on Ebay.

de-badge the rear..leave the ford badge unless your going to high fill it then re-spray it.
de-spoiler dump it but leave the xr badges on the skirts.

use a flat head to remove the badges but dont dig into the paint. wax and grease remover will take off all the glue.
dont go using a heat gun and rub it off because that ruins the paint (orange peel effect) and will give you a saw hand.

I think the XR badges alone would look cool. Not sure about removing the lot. Along with spoiler removal, it'll look like an xt from behind.

yeah im not sure about the spoiler, if i did take it off i would wanna replace it with an force lip cause that would just add to the smoothness after the badges come off.

i deff think pulling the 6 off the side would look good, but i would like a smooth rear end... sounds suss :D

that thing is f**k sexy... i wouldnt mind just pulling the 6 off, becasue everyone knows its a 6 anyways cause theres no bonnet bump lol.

but i'd love to dump my car like that. maybe not so much as mine is a daily driver still.

also on another note, lowering, do i just buy a set of king springs and change the coils over? or do i need to do anyhting else?

cheers

with removing badges, dont use a screw driver as there is always that little chance u can ding the paint work, my advice with a fishing line. get it under an edge and work it forward removing the badge. with springs, u will need spring compressors to get the spring apart from the strut, ect your shockers should be fine dpending how low you go.

Become mates with someone at a workshop and steal their compressor. It's such an easy job to do. Friend of mine and i lowered my car all-round with shocks/springs in about an hour and a half.
