Wassup ma niggas?!

I've got one of these mammas sitting around waiting to be put onto my Falcon. However, since my car is a Falcon and not a Fairmont, i don't feel that it's right to have a Fairmont badge on it.
So i'm going to make my own custom badge, but I don't know what to put in it. I thought maybe the blue oval, but the shape of the badge wouldn't really suit it.

Ideas anyone??

maybe just leave the badge off altogether just have the chrome across the back. just reshape the badge area so its smoother.

Make like a badge of an actually Falcon, the bird, lol. I dunno, but it's good I think that you don't want to use the Fairmont badge. 8)

Maybe checkout Supercrap, Autobarn, Repco and those type of joints for some emblems, maybe off keyrings (if they're large enough), that might suit, it will save you time designing and making your own.

If you design your own, you might be able to mask it off and use fibreglass resin as the filler.

How difficult would it be to modify a Ford badge to fit over the chrome garnish, so it'd look like the garnish from the a*** end of an AU? 'cause that works pretty well, with the logo over the strip.

I can't find a picture right now, but I'm fairly sure you get what I'm talking about.

Can I just be the first to congratulate you for not trying to badge your car something it's not.

Yeah I don't really feel right putting a fairmont badge on my falcon.
I know it's just an F, but it's still a fairmont badge, and my car's not a fairmont.
