Blue Oval grille badge

Since the clear coating is all bubbled up. Has anyone trie to chrome the badge with acetone. Looks like the "FORD" is not hard plastic. Any thoughts w/b appreciated, Thanks

I did that to mine. I just removed the rest of the top coating and used acetone on the blue. It came right off.

The grill is easy to remove. There is 4 bolts on the top of the grill. After you take those out pull the top of the grill away from the truck and stick a long screwdriver down the back side of the grill and release the 4 clips at the bottom.

Did mine today too, I used nail polish remover. Looks great but that clear coating definitely didn't want to come off easily.

Did mine also. Yeah, the clear coat took alot of soaking in acetone..lightly buffed with fine scotchbrite afterwards to make it look like satin/brushed aluminum.



Did the rear oval also. That one took alot more soaking and scraping. Finished and looks good.

I took acetone to mine as well. However I didn't like the way it looked so I got a new one for $25 at the stealership. I prefer the traditional blue oval look. When this emblem chips I am gonna get another one and take it to my friend who does car wraps, and get him to wrap the emblem in a clear vinyl sheet to see if that will keep it from chipping.
