    I found what I think was missing from the left side/rear spoiler of my new Hellcat. I wanted balance with the SRT on the right side. I shopped everywhere for Hellcat badges and emblems. All that I could find were either a Hellcat head only, the "Hellcat" name spelled out only, or SRT with a Hellcat head.

    What I finally found is the emblem below (on the rear spoiler) in a size that makes sense to me. I was aiming for something subtle and in good taste, What do you think?

    It does not look bad, just a lil too busy for me, personally. If you like it, then rock it out!

    I think you should remove the Dodge. I removed mine. Looks a little tacky to me. Paint the tail lights and reflectors while you're at it.

    I don't think I would add it to mine, but I do like the way it looks on yours.

    Looks ok, personally I'm not a fan of "adding" badges to a car, think people go a little overboard with wanting to have the hellcat logo all over the car, but yours is subtle. I'd agree if you like the badge might look better with the dodge removed.

    About the right size but lettering styles and finished clash.
    Brushed on one, chrome on the other. Italic vs heavy letters with extenders (slight italic slant)

    But it you like it...SOLD!

    Not that I plan to sell anytime soon but I always think about resale value if I am going to add something. Many people look at things like that with a skeptical eye. Whatever makes you happy.

    Looks good to me. How do you go about removing the Dodge logo?

    Dental floss works well for most factory badges that have double sided tape holding them on.

    Good point Toolman. The clashing styles bothered me too, and I am glad you brought it up. Leads me to my next question below - maybe the SRT lettering should go? Makes it not so busy and solves the clashing styles.

    Thanks everyone nice cross section of opinions, this is good. However, I don't get the remark about painting the tail lights and reflectors, no thanks. What would the consensus be about removing the SRT from the spoiler or removing both the SRT and the Dodge lettering? Or go totally stealth and remove everything?

    Blow dryer and credit card or fishing line will work. Comes right off. How does painting the tail lights not make sense. Simple concept.
