    Default Rebadge or debadge?

    So anyone who is following my official build thread on my 01 gt (basically no one haha ) knows that my car just underwent a transformation and was dropped off for paint. Well she's almost done. I got a call today asking if i wanted my badges put back on. I said no i would make that choice later. What do you guys think? Keep it debadged or stick um back on and own that its still just a slow gt?

    I have no input on the badges, but those stickers need to be taken off.

    Does that say "Balla?" or is the car named "Bella?" ..either way that one's particularly loathsome.

    Stickers are going . except for the "living the dream 2016" one in the back window. That sticker represents my sobriety and how far iv come in the last 3 years. So does the whole car honestly 3 years ago i had no job no car living with my momma sticking a needle in my arm. Cleaning up and turning my life around has granted me the ability to have what i atleast consider nice things.

    Car parts are a healthy addiction, because they aren't a one-time use.

    You can enjoy them for years and years, and they only pose a theoretical hazard to your health... Because rasekarz go fast.

    Handling upgrades, go-slow parts, and an attitude.

    Or months and months till you realize you need bigger and better... But then you can always post the old stuff for sale here and someone else gets to enjoy.

    I vote no badges except leaving the arrow up front and maybe do an inlay on the rear letters in the bumper.

    If it was my car i would not put them back on, when you smoke someone, they may not know what that cool car was! That's part of the fun

    No but really i don't like the look of the factory badge.

    Looks great. Just keep the front arrowhead but leave the other badges off.

    This. ^^^^ The new paint looks slick! The reflective arrowhead does serve a safety purpose if parked on a streetside at night.

    That's awesome that you made that transformation man. I'm friends with a lot of people that have been through the same thing and now they've decided to clean up and its the best thing you can ever do. I know that's hard to do but that's great that you did.
