P O R S C H E on Trunk

I upgraded my trunk emblem to a chrome 'PORSCHE'. It was getting dark so picture isn't great. It looks awesome in person, very pleased.

That looks really nice, especially against that beautiful GR paint!

Both additions look really good! I love the contrast between the letters and the red paint. I know it even looks better in person.

Cars and Coffee July in a couple of weeks.

That's going to be a ******************** to detail around.

Not a huge fan of the "PORSCHE" badging, seems kinda redundant. Everyone (most everyone) knows it's a Porsche.

Nice looking car. Love Guards Red.

Funny you should say that about detailing, I was thinking the same thing. I got my Zaino products the other day and put some on last night and today and it turns out the lettering is 10 times easier to clean around then the old emblem. I used a one inch spacing between letters so it makes it a breeze.
I like both the porsche and boxster s lettering, I think either in the chrome on the red is what makes it look good. The old emblem was worn out and impossible to get clean between the small letters, glad to see it gone. When it is off it is an excellent time to med cut, fine cut, basic compound, polish the area.

Great Idea.

I like it much better than the original. Where did you get the letters? Part or catalog number please?

The "PORSCHE" lettering is from the Porsche Panamera, I'm pretty sure.

Yes got it from ****************************************************. It is genuine Porsche, part #970 559 235 01. If you are interested in any details I did let me know.
