color matched ford emblems

I am having trouble finding a vendor online that sells these. I would rather buy some already made as I suck at painting. I would also like to get your opinions on which one I should use on the front grille. I got a new Stull billet grille and would like to mount a smaller oval than the factroy one that came on my truck on the drivers side lower side of the grille (similar to the placement of the oval on a Gen I Ranger). Thanks for the help!

I have read that people have done it themselves, but I would rather get some that are already done. I am not good at painting and stuff but if someone would like to make me some, that would be cool! As for the loacation on that black truck, I would like to have a smaller oval (maybe something like what was on a Ford Escort trunk lid or something) but I would like to have it in that same location as it the pic. I guess I would have to come up with a good way to mount it too.

1 more question...does the oval on the tailgate mount with the pegs into holes it the tailgate or is it just held on with adhesive? If it is just held on with tape, I have considered finding a small set of "FORD" letters and putting them on it's place for a different look.

It has pegs just like all the other emblems. You still could get some ford letters and just put them over the peg holes.

I was thinking of some of the smaller ones you would get from a restoration type place. When Dad & I restored a '64 F-100 when I was a teenager, you can get all those hood letters and stuff from online resto shops. You'd just have to find a style and size that you like.
