Just wondering if any one has used the DMB gel badge overlays on the new Mk 7 facelift fiesta, if so any good? 

 

:D

Loads have used them on the pre facelift and they are pretty good sometimes they need a bit extra adhesive on the big badges to stick them for good but all the others brilliant no problems

i think you'll find a fair amount of members have em lol

 

i've got the carbon chrome ones on my focus

 

its worth saying as well that they will do custom text if you request it

 

for example i've de-badged my car, so i got the rear overlay to say focus instead of ford.

 

so you could always get the front to say ford n the rear to say fiesta, would look a bit different

Another option is this site-

You can basically make whatever badge you want.

Highly recommended, I too have the carbon fibre chrome ones and they look really good on a black car. I did lose the front one, but the replacement seems to be holding on well, you need to make sure the surfaces are properly clean and you get enough heat on the adhesive.

 

Make sure you stick some photos up if you decide to go for it :)

I put DMB's on my MK7 and think they look good. Trick I used was to give the original blue car badge a really good clean with an alcohol wipe dry it with a clean cloth and then not only heat up the stickers but also the badge on the car with a hair dryer. Put them on in November and have had no problem with them at all.

I just used a sponge and soapy water to give the stock ford badges a quick clean, dried with a tea towel then i heated up the back of the overlays with hair dryer while they was still on the paper, as well as heated up the stock badges.  then i stuck on the overlays n applied more heat while smoothing it round with me fingers

 

all badges are stuck on solid n aint budged

So you stick these over the top of the original blue badges ? Are they shaped or curved then ? Or do they simply flex over the existing badge ?

Cheers
