Hey guys, another mod I've been pondering.

I was thinking having those Fairmont "F" badges above my side indicators, behind the front wheel arches, would look good. Do you know if Ford would sell either the one that went on the dash in the EF Fairmont, the ones that went on the front doors in the EL Fairmont, or the one that went on the boot gnarish on both the EF and EL Fairmont?

O, and the interior ones I mentioned, would that have a suitable back (a flat one), that would sit nicely on that exterior panel I described above?

Thing is too if the ones I have pictures of in my WANTED thread have like clips on the back, or some other s**t that would make it difficult to simply mount with double sided tape on a flat surface. I'll message Darren, cheers.

the EF & DF interior badges have no pins on the back, the rear garnish one does.

Lol, why may one ask, do you have all those?

Anywho, are the two EF Fairmont ones the same size? Just remembered I'll want two of the same eh, for each arch. Can you take some pics of the Fairmont ones anyway when you get the chance?

EF Fairmont one found somewhere, LTD ones are to be fitted to mine, garnish badge was part of a trade in which i got $$$ and a rear garnish w/ both ghia and fairmont badges for some spare wheels i had!

i'll have to borrow a camera as mine was flogged - when i do, i'll get some pics & measurements up.

i have one fairmont one off the interior door trim. they are held on with two clips, one of the clips is broken on the one i have. can easily put double sided tape on them as they have a large surface area.

Sweet, pictures? (scale ones, like next to a certain coin, a mobile, etc.)

the less badges the better... adding more tends to look tacky and out of place in my opinion.
