Black 'S' badges

Using some leftover stripe vinyl I made my 'S' badges on my CR/B cooper black. I would assume you could make them any color, just get some vinyl and cut them to fit. Would look sweet on a DS/B 'S'.

Subtle but nice touch on my MINI with black wheels and black viper stripes.
Haven't really seen anyone doing this? Looks cool. Could just picture one in yellow or orange or blue or something.

I also have some smoked side lenses on order to complete the look...will post a pic when I get it.

Cheers,
Skottoman

Looks great! I have seen one other person do that in Blue and it looked great - just like yours in Black... Nice job...

Chow!

Nice! As another CR owner I've wondered how to make the red 'S' on the boot stand out more. This is a good solution. I'm also wondering if making the base of the boot 'S' black while retaining the red inside might work.

I had wanted to have the little grills on the side markers either painted black or replaced with black a black grill but this might be better.

Will have to consider it.

I also want to get black wheels and stripes along with tinted tail lights, tinted corner markers and the black crystal side markers from CTG.

I don't know if I'd pay 9.95 for the stickers. you could use just about anything. It was easy. Cut it with an exacto blade.
JCampos... Great minds think alike. :smile: I ordered the tinted sidemarkers from moss mini right after I did the 'S' emblems. I see you beat me to the idea, but a good one it is....did you buy the sidemarkers pictured earlier in this thread or get them tinted differently?
Cheers,
Skottoman

Yeah the profit margin on something like that must be huge but if you don't happen to just have some left over vinyl strips lying around it is alright.
