Default Fake Gas Cap/Emblem Thing on the Trunk...

Is the fake gas cap just stuck on with adhesive or would there be holes left in the trunk id it were removed?

That is a great question, I was wanting to take the 4.6 emblems off and no one could ever figure out if there were two holes in the fender or not. I don't like the big thing on the trunk lid. It will be interesting to here what others have to say. You might call Roush since they make one as well, see if they say that it just sticks on or if there are alignment holes.

It's just stuck on there. You should be able to get it off by heating it up with a hair dryer or heat gun, then pull.

Man I hope you are right, guys went back and forth on the side emblems with no right answer, I was just at a car show and seen a mustang that didn't have it and he had pictures with a lot of bodywork where it had been, almost like he had to fill some holes in. The owner wasn't around or I would have asked him.

I was just behind a non 2010 (05-09) and it had a key hole on it to unlock the trunk...mine doesn't have that...maybe that was the reason for the body work(?)

Holes behind the emblems on the fenders (see pics)
and alignment holes behind the FAUX gas cap as well
Take it from me. HOLES, HOLES, HOLES.
How do you think the assembly line workers align
the emblems and FAUX gas cap?
By eye? Dont tink toe.

My fenders dont have holes as it is a non-PP V6.

The 2010 rear emblem does leave holes. I had to remove it when installing deck lid panel.

Check out these items on ebay.com:
# 300350251754
# 290352559364

I wish they came in a different background color. But that's my opinion, though.

disclaimer: I'm not the seller, not associated with the seller, nor do I endorse these products. I just happened to find them on a similar hunt for replacement.

I wonder if they are the same size, if so then still to big.

Maybe Ford was thinking that you would remove it and have a pan for baking a personal pan pizza.

That's about the funniest thing I've heard in weeks, dead serious.

And worst of all, it's true. That GT emblem just "honks" at you when looking at it from the rear.

Guys you could remove it and put the black out panel on and stick a GT emblem on it that's prolly what I would do.

I'm was thinking of blanking it out completly (i.e., just remove the whole thing.)

But the cost to fill in the holes (I believe there are 2) and have it professionally paint matched and clear coated would be prohibitive (albeit they are only 2 tiny little holes) compared to just finding a nicer size/looking emblem.
