Exclamation ITS DONE CHECK IT OUT GUYS LOOKS AWSOME 08-09 badge install

Hey i was wondering if anyone has wrote up a sticky on how to install the 08 09 fender badges/vents on a 99 to 07 superduty.If not what all does it take i just bought a set and i cant find any real good info on them so if there isn't any i was thinking of making a thread on how to install them.I know i have to cut the fender some and thats about all i've found out.

my badge writeup

Well i got them in the mail today and it took me about 2 1/2 hours to cut up a template and cut up my fenders.It wasn't to bad of a job.For the most part everything went great.

1) I traced out the one badge onto a piece of poster paper,then i cut out the holes for the tabs and pins ( I put wet paint on the ends of the tabs an pins and then pushed them to the paper).To cut the vents i fliped them with the outside down and rubbed the paper with a pencil and it outlined the vents and then i cut those out (kinda the same way you would make a gasket with a hammer) then i folded the paper over and doubled it up so it was stiffer,then i taped it all up with clear tape.

2) I went to home depot and puchased some dremal metal cutting disc (your going to need 5 to 6 disc) A sheet of flexable sheet metal,some double sided tape and a automatic centering punch,A 5/64ths 11/64ths and 17/64ths drill bits.

3) then i placed the poster cutout onto the sheet metal and traced that onto the metal,punched drilled and cut that all up and checked to see how well the badge fit and trimed accordingly to get a good tight fit.

4) find a good place of where you want to place your badge then use the double sided tape and stick you metal plate to your fender and punch,drill,cut and trim.(I placed mine 5/8 of an inch from the top of the sheet metal and 15/16 of an inch from the right side edge,then i placed the top edge of the sheet metal on the bottom line of my pin stripping and the top right side edge on the edge of the fender)

I will take some pics and try to get them up so you all can get a better idea of how i did everything.





















Im sorry I dont have any pics of the fender cutting or of it all cut up but it all went together so quickly and everything fit so tight that i can't get them back off unless i take out my inner fenders to sqeeze the tabs.Making the metal template was the way to go for sure.Also when i drilled out the holes with the 17/64ths bit i rocked the bit from side to side to make them a little bigger i will get a pic of that also so you can see what i am talking about.










If you guys have any ???? feel free to ask and i will try to answer them for ya.So what do you guys think should they sticky this so guys can get a better idea of what it all takes to do this i searched multiple forums and found nothing on this install.

whats next i guess its time to install my ex tank!!! ill get pics of that install too it'll be a couple of weeks though im heading back to work in a few days.

i like, one mod i wont be doing lol..i dont mind the old school badges, to me those are to big and bulky, i think im just going to get some custom ones made off a site i stumbled across and cheap..starts at 45$ each looks good though.


AND a sticky it is! .. its a good write up!
