They are obviously designed to cover the area occupied by the Fiat badges...although I wouldn't be surprised to find Fiat badges under them!Hi there, are the very large and attention drawing front and rear Abarth bonnet and hood badges removable with no adverse consequences on the panels? For example guiding lugs and subsequent holes etc?
Ouch! Didn't mean to offen you Stelvio. Just my opinion. Just not in love with billboarding on products. Plus, just because I have an issue with the badge and a few other choices doesn't mean I don't love the overall design. Cars just like people are not perfect, but you love them despite of it all.I like my badges. It is an Italian car. My Italian friends wear big gold chains around their necks among some other over the top styling cues. I think it is part of what makes them Italian. Mazda is still making the MX-5, right?
My wrap shop just cut around them. They did however, have to remove the chrome "124spider" badge from the trunk lip, and suggested I purchase a new one because removal destroys the adhesive. So I got a new one from Desira Parts out of the U.K. and it took a couple weeks to ship. I think it was somewhere around $40.To each their own, I like the badges. I paid the premium price for the premium car. It's nice to be part of the heritage and show it. I am however still interested in how to remove them though, for the same wrap reason.
I've seen them for sale on eBay and they appear to have a couple of pins on the back side. I suppose one could find a smaller badge of some sort to cover the holes left behind on the trunk lid. BTW, the inner lid is covered in carpet and requires removal of around 18 clips to access the sheet metal.Any thoughts on the rear trunk badge being removable? Doesn't appear to have a recess hiding under the badge. Would someone mind having a look from under the lid for me?
Thanks for letting me know Jim. Looks like i'll have to get a bit of paint and panel work done :crying:I've seen them for sale on eBay and they appear to have a couple of pins on the back side.

I'm keeping my lid badging though, even though it sometimes remind me of a big Texas belt buckle. I'm fond of them in a humorous sort of way.
