sorry if i'm stating the obvious mate but you don't remove the original badges

 

you simply stick the overlays over the original badges

 

thats why they called over lays lol

 

 

with a bit of heat they'll stick on beautifully and you'll never know the old ones was underneath ;)

I got these and as Charlie says they just stick over the originals. Heat the new badge and the original with a hair dryer and they stick a treat.

as Phil says, best technique is to give the original badges a quick wipe with soapy water, heat up the paper backing with badges attached with your missus's hair dryer, and also heat up the original ford badge too. peal the overlay from the backing, smooth the overlay over original badge with your fingers while applying more heat as you do. job done. they should be stuck on a treat n not budge after.
