What can i do to cover this?

Painting it can be done but it puts it over the £1000 mark with the bumper being done to fill the holes that they drilled in Texas. Just seeing what can be done?

Hellcat badge lower down?
V8 Badge
Supercharged badge?
Tint the indicator and leave it?


Looking for ideas.

This was installed on my car to get UK plates (Europe law) now i have muth indicators on the mirrors which are so much better. These are now redundant.

cheers

Assuming there is one on the other side as well, I would just cut the head badges off with some dental floss and drop them both down a bit. Still sucks, but no worse than putting another badge on the fenders. I hate over-badging...

Agree with @Old Mopar Guy I'd drop the badge down. Most people would be clueless to the fact it was lowered except for the eagle eye people that really know their cars.

If you remove them and cover them with the HC badge, are you going to run into issues at inspection time?

He says he now has them in the mirrors so maybe that's all he needs.

I don't see any reason to not just lower the badges.

Is the marker flat to the black gasket or is it protruding from the car?

If the marker is flat, remove the badge, cut out just the slit in the Hellcat eye and cover the whole with the badge.

Use some black paint and paint the orange.. you’ll still know it’s there but atleast you won’t see it. Done, and it will take all of 2 min and 0 effort/$

Check with @Diboblo he's probably got something already that would work, or look cool. If he doesn't, put me in the drop the badge group. Most of the cat lower jaw would probably cover it once you got that light out of there, but I reserve the right to be wrong.

They are redundant and don't work now. On the mirror is fine. I don't really want to add a hemi badge but maybe a v8.

Is the marker flat to the black gasket or is it protruding from the car?

Its not flat no it sticks out.

I'm going to see what it will look like with the hellcat emblem lower down. I don't think it will look too off.

Yeah I'll keep quiet on that front. I couldn't live there too many things that are backwards 😂

Put some bondo, sand and paint it or change the panels all together. Another badge there would be too much and lowering it, to me would look “off” Sorry my .02

I'd have it fixed right. Moving the badge down will look like a badly rebadged Scat Pack.....or something.

Either way it's all wrong. Just get it fixed right.
