    Hi Folks,

    Am toying with installing the below badge on my Cat's front grill and found getting to the other side of the grill is quite challenging (no pun intended).

    I've seen others who have done this, anyone have any tips on how to get to the engine compartment side of the grill?

    Thanks in advance!

    I just carefully shaped it to match the grill curve and then used double back trim tape and left the nuts off completely

    Hah! Makes sense. Looks like I would have to completely dismantle the front end to get to the other side of the grill. :confused:

    yep, i have the same idea, had the emblems now for 6 months tried twice to find an easy way without having to take everything apart, but no luck, will have to disassemble quite a bit of stuff to get in behind there. will try again later.

    I would never alter the looks of my rare valuable car. Just be careful that it can be returned to stock. Some day these cars may be worth a bit of money but then again maybe not. I just remember when I was younger guys modifying old muscle cars beyond the point of no return. Not criticizing anyone here but just a warning from someone who has been there. For me the way Dodge designed it is the way it stays. Mud flaps would be the only exception but that is somewhat if a necessity I guess.

    Totally with you Jungle Cat. That's why I said, "toying with the idea" in my original post. :)

    Taping it to the grill seems a bit scarier from my perspective as the glue could leave a mark if/when I remove it. The bolt on made sense as that's easily removable...assuming I could get it installed in the first place.

    I think it would look cool to remove the Dodge letters between the rear tail lights and double stick tape that badge there.

    Considering you can go weeks without seeing another except my own then yes that is rare. Considering numbers of Hellcats made compared to other cars and the trouble people have had locating one to buy then yes it is by very definition rare. Camry not rare.

    $70k in my world is also pretty valuable.

    Those badges say "easy install" on the description. What a joke.
    I bought the ones with 3M tape instead.
