Badge idea for my car

Got bored this morning so I started playing around in SolidWorks


I have been toying with the idea of removing the "Thunderbird LX" script on the trunklid but do not want to leave holes. The insperation for this came from an air cleaner decal I found on e-bay just it had birds on both sides of the text. If I do go through with this I think I may make some plates to dress up the valve covers also. It's nice having a CNC mill at work

Let me know what you guys think.

That would be good for a supercharged 4v, but we need somthing different for our cars.

Methinks this one is going to be a one-off

ive got the "thunderbird" from a 01 bird on the trunk...






however it does not cover up the holes in the trunk lid, but if 94/5 you dont have to worry about it.

i had my holes filled when the car got painted.
