Custom grill emblem. Sorry for the big pictures

I got bored today and tried an idea I learned from another board. It was so simple I was suprised I hadnt thought of it before.
You take the blue oval off the grill.
Pry the blue part out of the chrome housing (this was on my 97 F-350)
Find what ever you want to replace it with on the net or in your computer.
Put it into a photo program of your choice.
Play around till you find the right size/shape.
Print it out.
Cut it out.
Laminate it.
Use double sided sticky tape to "glue" it into the chrome housing where the blue oval use to be.
Reinstall into grill.
Show off to friends and neighbors.
My finished result:

That's a great idea, and first time I've seen it suggested. Good job on emblem, but did ya have to use that silly Deere?! Farmall would have looked better!:-)

I still can't figure out why ya like those John Deeres. Oh wait, there it is.... "I love diesel fumes". All those fumes going to your head! No really, I'm just ribbing you a bit. I like all the older tractors, just have to have my favorites!

That's cool, I can take it
My dad buys and restores old tractors, mostly Ford and JD's. Your right, we all got our favorite tractors, just like we all got our favorite trucks. Heck, I even know a guy who wont buy nothing but Kubota.......now THAT'S silly
