Had a butchers at a VX Holden Calais the other day (not to buy you must believe) and thought that the badges on the side of it looked pretty classy. Sooo ... i went to Auto One and picked up 2 EL Fairmont badges for $22 each, made up a jig and stuck them to the side of my Fairmont ala Calais style. What do you reckon?

i reckon it looks pretty good. i would be interested to se what it would lookk like with the badge under the mould, like EFNWIKD6 has.
I reckon i might be tempted to look at some BA ones for my ED wagon. maybe.

I reckon removing the fairmont badge on the rear and replacing it with a ticky badge, then put the fairmont badges on the side would look sweet as
