Emblem opinions

Since I debadged and I cant leave well enough alone, I experimented with the sport on the lower grille. I like it but then again it looks out of place and maybe that's because Im just not use to it.
The tape in the pic is double side and it wouldn't be present if I was to permanently mounted it. I thought about placing the Fusion on the left, but I like just the sport.
Let me know what you think.

I have mixed feelings about it. I think it would work for me if it were something shorter like SRT (Dodge) or ST/RS (Ford). The sport logo seems a little long to me.

I have to agree with dlm. I think if it were something shorter, and was mounted to the grill itself, I think it would look better.

Part of the reason I wish they called it the ST or RS instead of Sport...

I like it. Without the tape, I think it will blend right in. Its not far off from the badges the others have mentioned that are usually in the grille. Down on the bottom like that, on the long side of the lower intake blocking, I think it fits in very nicely, Almost like it gives some purpose to the asymmetry.

Its giving me ideas...

EDIT: Also, IMO, It looks better in the middle than the bottom

I think you make a good point about seeing the tape. Sometimes its hard to look past.

I think it is a clever spot to put the badge, and if you are set on not having it on the back, then on the grill isn't bad.

With that being said, I like the Badges right where they are on the car. After all, when you beat someone off the line, and they want to know what just smoked them, they gotta read the "Sport" off the back.

If I dont place them on the front, I plan to put the sport on the chrome spear once its painted.

Check to see if you have a radar unit behind the plastic shield before blocking it with the emblem.

not a fan ,like everyone has said if it were shorter it may look better. Someone mocked up "ST" on the front right of the car but on the upper grill, it looked killer but the car isnt an ST lol

This has me wondering how it would look with the smaller Sport badge from my 2010.
