Good for you. I'm the exact opposite. Doing all I can to remove ALL extraneous badging. Don't need it, don't want it.
Can you post or send me photos of yours without badges?
After about 2 years, the plasti-dip is starting to peel off mine and I’m trying to not spend money on ordering black badges. I feel like I’m taking away my Passports identity by removing them.

I know someone posted a photo before but I’ve lost it and can’t find without searching thru way too many posts. 🤣

Please let me know what do you guys think of these photos, attached. Got V6 tag and USA metal tag from Amazon.
Any critique/opinion welcome!
Personally, I like the black badges much better.
And for me, the plasti-dip only held on mine for about 2 years, 13k miles.

@ProdGirl Every car I’ve owned since 1990 other then my S2000 I’ve debadged it.

But I did add the Type R red badge to bring a little more red to the back besides the tail light lens.
Thanks. I’m just so on the fence about it...
It does look good though!

Do It! All the cool kids are...
Maybe it was your post I saw, it looks familiar?
Grrr...I just don’t know. Any MSM’s without badgers?
I feel like it needs some tattoos (and no stickers) - I have vowed to not add stickers to this one.

No photos to share but you can imagine and now see thanks to others posting their debadged rides.

I did post that the first thing I did to our PP (acquired 5/17/21) was to remove that ELITE badge that rubbed me wrong from the get go. ELITE. Lol How pretentious can it get? /rhetorical ?

Passport is going next. I intend to leave only the AWD as quick visual proof to LEO when we're in winter weather moving forward. IOO (my wife as well), almost all badging is extraneous and nothing more than visual blight to any of our whips (going back 20 years together).

Btw, what is an MSM in relation to this topic? I know what MSM usually means outside of your post.

Just my opinion....Leave it as it was when it left sweet home Alabama. Adding, removing, changing badge color and on and on (n)

To each their own, I personally believe in customizing it even though we’re kinda limited to what can be don.e. Just this morning I went to a local car show and couldn’t imagine how boring that car show would have been if every Vette, Mustang, C10 or Skyline were as they were when they rolled off of the assembly line.

I agree, "To each their own" but I'm sure you've watched the Mecum Auto/auction show. Most all the vehicles are primo original stock or refurbished to stock condition. Customizing usually degrades the value of a vehicle. (but not always)

For certain numbers matching vehicles absolutely, but if/when I’m ever to build my own “hotrod” it will be a grand touring ‘66 Nova or ‘69 Lowrider VW bug.

I had a ‘05 S2000 with 20k miles on it and I certainly wasn’t going to modify it simply because it looked great stock and if you look on BringaTrailer.com the stock low mileage S2000’s are bringing more then new prices, not to mention most not all of the modified ones were done on the cheap cheap. I belonged to a S2000 club where most were modified with roll cages, exhaust, coil overs, rolled fenders and turbo/supercharged high horse-power cars (500+) but most of those I would never buy because of the sloppy work and temperamental engines.

For me it depends on the vehicle and what your intent with owning it is.
