Subtle and classy.

Is it possible to get the H/K decal off?

Andy can remove the HK insignia and cover the whole grille in acoustic fabric. We did his rear mids and highs and the HK grille in his car. Much nicer than the screen door look.

I like it too. I wondered about Z3 insignias painted body color on the trunklid. The P-car guys do this.

Send it to Andy when you are ready to ditch the HK propaganda.

If the adhesive doesn't hold, let me know and we can hit it with Devcon Welder.
