Yep, I finally got my Beetle turbo badge all set up on the front grille. I ended up getting a euro V6 golf front grille clip thingy and peeled the V and the 6 off of em. Slapped the Turbo on and off I ran to the car
Tossed it into the middle slat, lined it up with the lil brace in the back and *pop* on it went. Looks pretty good, I took some pics (old skool so they gotta be developed
) and hopefully i'll have them up soon.
I'm thinking of taking it off and trying to peel the Turbo badge back off to paint the clip.... its kinda a flat grey.... I didnt really think things through cause i've been waiting for this forever

Ho well, looks good enough for right now and I'm happy with it
Worst case is I have to work on it some more this weekend http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

So you can actually peel the letters off the V6 front badge? Sweet! Now i may be able to make a front GTI badge using the Futura font...

I had the part number up til about 20 minutes ago when I ended up cutting part of the piece of paper in half to ship something....
Sorry. I can tell you that I got the clip from http://www.parts4vws.com (the pottermans http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif ) and I'm sure that someone else has the part number for the badge
