Replaced my 86 badge

Found some aluminum TRD badges that are the same size as the 86 ones.

Cool, different look.

I think I prefer the 86 badge though.

I didn't like the 86 badge either, but replaced them instead with GT86 emblems.

I cut them openand put some aluminum mesh in them. You can feel and if you look just right can see heat escaping from the side.

do you have pics of the cuts on the backside of the fender trim? I have my BRZ fenders vented but I'm thinking of getting the 86 trim. I've been brainstorming how to cut them.
