  1. No sir, it's not raised underneath the sticker. The sticker sticks on top of the same logo that is etched into the plastic. I guess the company decided that if the customer removed their crappy sticker then they will still have the brand on the product. You can see it and feel it but from a distance is not noticeable at all. To answer your other question about painting it I would think so after seeing the options on Carid website. They have all of our colors for $146.29. That's cheaper than what I paid to have mine wrapped. I bought some paint from Automotive Touchup.com to paint my emblems and I was very happy with the match. I thought about painting mine if the vinyl got damaged but I guess you would just need to be careful with the flex carrying it from point of paint to install.
  2. Perfect, now I could've just bought the one already done and saved the aggravation of having mine wrapped. Damn this forum constantly costing me money. I've got to buy one to have as a backup. I've been worried about a rock or something hitting mine and cutting the vinyl.
  3. That sticker (logo) just peels right off. I don't even think it it true 3m adhesive because of how easy it comes off. I have had bandaids take more effort to get off.
  4. Perfect then, the logo peels off easier than most tapes.
  5. They are perfect on black vehicles, but my OCD will not allow me to buy black anymore. My wife has a Magnetic Grey Ford Edge and it looks pretty good on hers as well. Magnetic Grey will be about as close to black as I will go.
  6. It will come off cleanly, it is easier than the factory badges and the dealership stickers. There is their logo etched into the bug shield though. It is under the raised badge. You can see it through the vinyl but barely. I will post a picture of that later when I get home.
  7. I had a shop do it for me but it is something that someone with a lot of patience could do. I'm not that person. The shop did it actually three times. The first time the logo was on and it didn't look right, the second time the shop got trash in it and replaced it before I even picked it up and the third is NOT totally perfect but is extremely close. There are some corners that I fidget with every once in a while trying to get it to lay down smoother. It's very hard to see though.
  8. It had the AVS oval logo on it and the shop I had wrap it wrapped it with the logo on it. It looked like my truck had a pimple that needed to be popped. The shop does business with the company I work for so it was a little awkward at first but I worked out a deal with them to redo it. It looks amazing and it is a perfect match. I wouldn't hardly notice it at all if it didn't look so good. I have always had a bug shield on my trucks since 1989 when I got hit by a rock truck in front of me. There was a sign though, "not responsible for objects falling from truck". This rock hit the pavement and bounced perfectly at the hood.
  9. Here is my AVS that has been vinyl wrapped with Oracal Premium Cast 970RA, color code 090 Silver Grey Metallic. The match is perfect.
  10. Here is my AVS Aeroskin 322075 with a vinyl wrap.
  11. I am looking for a member that has purchased and installed an American Brother Designs billet front grille insert (Silver). I have a favor to ask.
  12. Can you post a picture of this on the inside of the fuel door?
  13. Which is perfect if it will work there. I'm in if that is the case. I'm curious about the battery life and if it is possible to change depending on the mount location.
  14. You can disregard my request for the diodes. The radio shack in my area went out of business but there was one close to where I worked. They had two left so I bought those. Radio Shack must know about this mod and increased the price to $1.50. Ha! Still one of the cheapest mod's I've done. I've traded my 2013 Ford Platinum for this truck and there are two things I was missing. The fog light switch was built in to the headlight switch on the Ford and could be pulled and left in that position to leave the fogs on. That quirk has been resolved with the jumper, now to add ambient lighting. I appreciate the research and advice. I could not pull the harness out, too scared or too stupid, so I installed the jumper with it plugged in. It was difficult to get to but I did file down the ends as directed and inserted the ends in the corners as directed. They seem to be in there good enough but my OCD will require me to use a small zip tie to help hold it in place. My OCD also noticed that the fog light indicator light on the instrument panel does not light up either. So now I find myself looking for a reflection in the car in front of me to make sure they are on. Thanks again to those who post for those of us less challenged.
  15. Does anyone still have any diodes to send out? I'm ready to try this on my 17.
