Oh I definitely like it. But only if painted white (or a dull white?). The emblem won't be that big in real life, but it'll still look good dressing up the side. I say pull the trigger haha

Appreciate your feed back!

I was thinking it looks a bit busy with the decal?

Also, I was thinking of painting the 4.0 emblem silver, to match the decal and wheels. Although, the chrome emblem does match my chrome honeycomb front upper/lower grill.

I personally don't, but I guess wait for some more opinions! And yea, I think a silver 4.0 would look good. I thought you had a black front grille?

I personally wouldn't Kevin, I think it will be kind of cluttered. I think the side looks perfect as is, but thats just my opinion. And like mentioned above its not nearly as big as that chop .

it looks pretty good but what you really need to do is tint your windows.

I think it would look good like that, and I agree that you should tint the windows.

Also, a supercharger wouldn't hurt. Nope, not at all.

The problem is not that it doesn't look good. The problem is a "clutter" effect. Either do the emblem or do the sidestripe, but not both.

What about dropping the badge so its lower on your front fender between the wheel and your rocker decal? You could then paint the badge a lighter shade of grey to follow the fade of your decal. IMHO that would cut down on the "clutter" and flow better with the body lines.

Sorry for the delay, I was out of town all week on vacation in FL. I appreciate everyone's thoughts and opinions.

At this time, I am going to pass on the emblem, I think it looks a bit cluttered, even with the smaller emblem version. Thanks for re-doing, Tanner, ;-)

TinPony, I purchased the silver OEM Saleen stripes off of eBay last year. They turned out great!

Yes, tinting my windows is on the list to do! My windows rub really bad and I need to get moleskin before i can get the tint put on.
