Default Grille Badges

Hi,
Has anyone added badges to their front grill? I have some old ones in the garage somewhere and I'm wondering if I could use them on my 04 cruiser I won't even bother to try and find them if they won't fit on a cruiser.
Thanks,
Karen AKA Chintzgirl

Hey their chintzgirl,

For some reason I am having a hard time trying to picture what look your going for with badging the grille. Do you mean like this...or?



Please give me a bit more insight as to what your going for and I can kick it around if you like. You got me kinda curious now.

Hello Candyman,
Nope, I mean those badges you usually see on vintage Mercedes, they're usually
city, country, or car club badges. Like this one seen here.

Thanks for your help. I think they'd look swell on the cruiser but mine are in a box in a very messy garage

Here's a Morris Minor ( my dream car!!) with a couple of badges:

Hey their chintzgirl,

Oki Doki....I got a better picture now. Interestingly enough, I don't think I have ever seen a PT with them on before. The closest thing I can remember is this cool old school PT that has a full on custom grille with a badge/emblem incorporated into the design, and a really cool AAA badge on the tailgate.





I think it would be a really cool unique look.

As for your garage though....

Go easy, and if you pull it off, please shoot me over a pic so I can add it to my photo archive. I love anything totally different than everyone has!

That's a great looking cruiser in your pictures Candyman. I still think the badges will look nice and tomorrow I'm gonna tackle that garage and see if I can
find the ones I have (they're probably all Italian related as they were for the
Alfa Romeo collection we had)

Thanks again for the great pics
K.
