    I have a few questions. First is has anyone done this? Does it leave the badge any looser than before (I don't want my badge falling off or rattling)? Also, the guy provides a link to his carbon fiber vinyl, where can I get it for cheaper?

    Since it is just a clip and you are making the plastic behind it thicker it should be tighter and more secure. Quieter too because it is vinyl instead of plastic.

    Has to be cut anyway so is true DIY.
    There is another instructional that shows easier way to remove decal, they say us credit card (or customer loyalty card
    ) slide underneath where clips are to push them in to pop out. I am going to try, already have a larger piece of black carbon fiber coming to do front bumper center with and should have left over scraps for this project.

    I like the green too, this guy was clever. To make it very durable you could get it laminated, probably at Kinko's also.

    link, same price but bigger piece if you want to try some other bits on the car. It takes a little longer coming from China, usually 2-3 weeks.

    Ahhh I should've checked eBay!

    I checked Amazon and got something off there less than 5 bucks and free shipping.
