Agreed. The car is all "back out" trim and while I agree with you the letters are a tribute to the old 70's cars, it's out of place now. The fact is this decal was to be on the rear deck lid of the 1971 Boss so you can take some measure of nostalgia there!
I painted the silver "wart" the emblem is mounted on black but decided to not paint the chrome FORD ring. I'll post photos of that and a few other mods in the next week or so after my suspension mods are installed.JeffIsHereToo said:
Surprising how complicated they made something so simple. I bought a second one and had the ring painted while it was in one piece and it came out fine. The shop matched the black on the emblem and it matches the deck lid decal nicely.four-walling said:Looking forward to seeing the pics. I seem to remember reading somewhere the pony trim piece was very difficult to remove.
