new badges for my ranger Q?

Today i was at my local ford dealer getting my cruse contoll recall taken care of so i took a walk into the parts department and asked for prices for the ranger badge but i guess they only have the regular Ranger and the XLT ones so i got 2 of the XLT ones they were 14$ea and they will be in tomorrow morning.

what do u guys think i should do?

should i keep them the way they are and put them on or should i drop them in paint thinner and make them all chrome??

can i do that with the new style?

what does everyone think?

yes use goo-gone on a rag and just wipe off the old tape

make sure you wash the area with soap and water before you put your new badges on

if you are gonna wax it, your gonna have to take the wax off the area that is going to be adhered to. wax+ tape doesnt equal a good combo, i found that out
