My new custom faux gas cap. Let me know what you think!!
 
3/16" thick billet aluminum. 4 1/16" in diameter. Should have it in about a week. Can't wait. :kooky:

The badge alone.

Some minor modification to the mounting surface. I had to sand down 4 raised areas under the surface of the original badge. I think they were there to line up the badge with the surround. I ran some fishing line under the surround piece and carefully started to pull it up to remove it from my blackout panel. This procedure works on the standard faux gas cap that comes on the regular trunk lid. Be careful because once it pops off you don't want it to hit the ground. I then cleaned the area with rubbing alcohol.

I like it; love how you integrated the red, white, and blue from the original pony emblem. But what are you gonna do if you UP the horsepower :)

alan0614 07-25-2011 12:12 PM

Did you have a machine shop cut this for you? This looks great, can't wait to see the pics.

the kit is rated at 475 FWhp. so i wonder if he added a 100 shot of N2O.
that would put him in the ball park.

very nice!!!

BKamp613 08-17-2011 12:11 PM

That's pretty awesome.

I usually am not one for custom rear emblems just because I like the factory one so much. (unless its a black paint job on the chrome)
I do like the emblems on the 05-09's better. They look more like the old ones for some reason to me.
But the new ones are pretty sweet too.

I must admit though.. yours looks KILLER!
I would definitely rock that!

mtflyboy25 08-17-2011 12:35 PM

that looks amazing!

wrxified 08-17-2011 01:00 PM

Thank you everyone for the compliments.

I agree the emblems that come on the car are good to begin with which is why I wanted to use the same style. I liked the red, white, blue theme used on the v6 models and wanted to carry that over.

Now that's cool.
