    I have one there too - yes, cannot see when you're driving, but because the chip is against a black background, it is quite visible from the outside. Arrggghhh.

    I'm not sure how much I'm liking this repurposing of the small Stinger badge. Thoughts?

    Def a no for me. The less cheap chromey badges on the car the better.

    Agreed, but I do like the old-style script badges in the same spot on my daughter's '14 Challenger after we removed the block style on the grill.

    Well, you'd kind of want one on each side, imho. But I'm in the "less badges the better" bracket too.

    I really like the front grill idea. Anyone know how this was done.

    After I de-badged the back of the car, I painted the small stinger script and stuck it on the hatch cover. I like it.

    When I read how much the Stinger windshield would cost, I called up my insurance company, USAA, and made sure they covered a Stinger GT2 windshield, even though it has HUD and Rain sensing. She was like yup. I asked if there was a price limit on an individual replacement, she said no. I asked if there was a yearly amount they wouldn't go over, she said nope. Just pay the 100 deductible.

    It's a good thing, cause these windshields seem flimsy. I got my first rock chip within a month, then a second a few weeks later, and some scratches from rocks in a couple other spots. I've had the car just over 3 months.

    Used 3M double sided tape and isopropyl alcohol to prep the surfaces. Still stuck on good, about 10 months now.

    Also filled the ebadge with clear acrylic for added wow in the sun.

    3rd rebadge is a charm. Think I'll keep this one.
