    Couple quickly pics all put back together. Overall it looks amazing couple spots are a little wavy but i think thats on me not getting the filler completely flat. Now 4 to 6 weeks before it can be attacked with a buffer and some compound.

    I need me one of those...

    Anyways, OP's car looks good. Keep it badgeless.

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

    I get the debadge look when it comes to wanting to have the clean look. When it comes to trying to deceive someone or as it's known "the sleeper look." I just don't get it ! I know most people don't see world exactly as i do so obviously this is just "my opinion." Would you debadge a Charger SRT8 OR take that HEMI badge off the side of some RT's so that someone would think it's a base Charger? Hell no you wouldn't ! How about one of those mid-80's turbo Buicks ? Would you take those off so as to try and deceive people into thinking it's a base Regal ? If your sh!@t's quick than your sh@!t's quick ! Have some CONFIDENCE in your ride. Let them know " this is what beat you" instead of what one poster said "they may not know what that cool car was." Hell...leave them on and let them know you got beat by a Supercharged/turbo Grand Prix. If you loose than you fu!%ing lose it's no big deal unlesss you're so afraid of someone wupping your souped up Granny that you'll feel better in believing that since they didn't see any badges they'll think they just wupped a base model. That's weak...grow some balls and learn how not to be afraid to lose.

    Do you drive a mustang, by chance?

    Really though, that's completely besides the point. Here's an example; My 05 CompG is needing paint badly. The rear badge isn't holding up well and starting to peel. They are hard to find secondhand in my area. Why would I put a crap-lookin badge back on my newly painted car? Or what if I wanted a Buick emblem somewhere for a nod to the 3800? There's even a WS6 Firebird badge to go with the "wrong" RPO code on a Grand Prix. Maybe someone wants one of those..

    It's all about the look and who's drivin'. If I'm comfortable in my rusty 2.2l runnin' all four donuts, you'll catch me leanin' out the side, no matter what badge I put on it. Lol

    What are you rambling about then? The badge on a persons car = their cojones?

    You have such random examples in your response. A Buick Grand National? Yeah, who the hell would take off the badges?

    Deception? What, is how a car looks some kind of measure for morality or self-worth?

    I'm sorry if you jumped in over your head, but your comment sounded like bashing. I don't see any point in doing that over a stupid @ss badge.
