Debadge or not?

100% I used braided fishing line and a wee bit of heat from a hair dryer. Sorted

Just after opinions, always interested to hear. My Fn2 didn't have one and I do prefer the look without.

I always think debaging makes it look like the cars been rear ended and the bodyshop was too lazy to put new badges back on.

Always going to be a 50/50 on this one..
If YOU like or prefer it, then do it... Did in on my 9G, thought it looked alot 'cleaner'.
Will keep em on my 10G, just because I like them for some unknown reason

I replaced the TypeR badge on the back of my Milano Red FN2 recently and found that the paint had faded a bit so the spot where the badge was stood out. This could be because it's red of course and the grey might not be affected but ............
Also the model badge is helpful to the dumbf***s out there to identify a good car when they see one.
Keep it original!

It's done

Dental floss, a hairdryer, my thumb nail, a garage towel, some tar remover, some megs polish and a bit of patience. I'm happy with it.

Much better I think. Iím glad you kept the R badge. I think just having that badge makes for a nice rear end
