Re-badge placement suggestions?

Looking to contrast the Hydro Blue with orange rather than red. I already painted my engine cover bright orange. Now I've ordered, and hand painted, some replacement Trailhawk and Trail Rated badges. Thinking of putting the replacement badges in a non-stock location if anyone has any creative ideas.

The stock Trailhawk and Trail Rated badges have already been removed, so the only external Trailhawk indicator currently on the vehicle is the vinyl sticker on the hood.

Here's a pic of what the hand-painted replacement badges looked like while they were being painted, and before I cleaned them up a bit.

Vehicle of my dreams? Hmm ... always stay skeptical, but enjoy what you've got while you've got it.

On the hood, do you mean the big flat black panel? I am thinking of putting on on my tailgate. I have seen two other THs in town who have done this.

I mean the plastic + heat insulated piece directly over the engine has already been painted orange (see pic). Figured I'd start with something I would appreciate, but wasn't visible to the outside.

The hood is still stock.

Thought about centering the Trailhawk badge on the back (vertically and horizontally), and maybe removing the 4x4 badge from the back since the Trail Rated badges also say 4x4. Then again I might leave the Trailhawk badge off altogether.

I'd just debadge them, instead did relocating.

You run the risk of the badges looking "out of place", instead of "creative and unique."

However, it's your car, do what you want and what will bring you enjoyment.

It is a pain to take them back off, I think it'll be fine. Thankfully this is a relatively minor change .
