    Two or three self-tapping nut-like squishy thingies (10 or 12 mm socket, I forget) onto nylon nubs extending from the emblem

    My $13 emblem came with new nuts

    Will be doing black vinyl over the blue on mine tomorrow leaving the chrome “Ford”. It bothers me that the emblems are the only blue things on my white truck

    Please post a picture of the result. Will you x-acto cut along the script for the chrome areas?

    Vinyl was a fail. Even with the exacto knife you need a very steady hand and the vinyl doesn’t cover all the blue after your cuts. Ordering black and chrome badges now on amazon

    Based off of @cibalo post, here are some images of the front emblem removal. I was able to find the theee tabs behind the emblem and remove them without removing the plastic cover under the hood. Tight squeeze but I got it through the grill gaps with just my hands. Here’s a pic of the three tabs and the whole assembly off B9F3E04C-4FB0-4717-87D8-ACC7828F1C1A.jpeg 3BD90C5F-6A09-49FE-AB0B-64E14F6537FE.jpeg next you will need to remove the two nuts on the screw posts pictured here 9F866394-DCFD-4D69-9439-ADEC6136BE17.jpeg as he stated, twist the posts that you just removed the nuts off of and will look like this
