R stripes on Boxster

I finally said what the heck and bought myself some red R stripes to go on my silver boxster. Whether you like the idea or not I ran into a glitch. The back stripes will go right over the boxster S logo. I am trying to think of solutions. Do I stop the stripes before they hit the logo, pull logo off and put stripes down and logo over stripes, or notch the stripes around the script? I don't want to remove the boxster logo. My gut says the logo will be hard to read or red and silver. I feel like since it's not an R, I can really do anything. Suggestions anyone? Thanks.

My vote would be remove the logo, put the stripes on, and refasten the logo, they sell plastic trim adhesive at parts stores but it is messy so practice on a test piece, and if you think the logo would blend in after test fitting, maybe plasti-dip it another color

I think under is the only thing that would look good.
Maybe a silver "Boxster" would look better than black.

Whatever you go with, make sure you post up some pics! I'm think of doing R stripes on my race car this winter

I'll take it off. The logo is silver, maybe I should paint black so it contrasts with red and silver. The car's colors are silver, black and red ,calipers.
Thanks guys. I'll post some pictures when it's done. It should look really good or really stupid. We will see.

With that logo I've been wondering if it could be attached to a sheet magnet some way then you can remove the logo for polishing etc. I'm guessing it may fly off at speed though. Maybe you could imbed a few neodymium magnets in the underside of the logo? probably a bad idea.

Couldn't do the R because of the rear trunk lid. Not saying it can't be done, I just can't do it. I changed it up.

I guess this isn't going over to well. 😄 I have the RS stickers if anyone wants to try. I used the roof decals. The hood and trunk are still available.

the racing stripes reminded me of the white stripes on my dad racing cars of the early 60's (nice memories and a few pics)

But the stripes where included on the bumpers as well ..sorry, don't know how to photo-shop

I thought about the bumper but wasn't sure it would look right on a boxster. Just my opinion for this car. After working on the rear, I was glad I didn't. It would have been really tough doing the rear spoiler. The heat from the exhaust might not have been so good for the vinyl.
