Thanks!!:)...Yeah like I said it took awhile to make this thing...I like to be different and I figured no one had tried this yet, so I did!!...It's all just a matter of shaving the old letters out, filling in the section, sanding, priming, and painting!...Just time consuming! Lol :D

I actually work in a dealship that has Ford/KIA/Hyundai/Suzuki...I work in the bodyshop as a mechanic, I had the paint guys mix up DRR (racing red) :)...Perks of working there!!

Thanks!...I had the decal guy at my dealership cut that decal, he was able to find the exact writing as the Koup emblem on the trunk!!...I love it!!
