Default CUSTOM Ford Oval Emblems (KY)

I'm new to this forum, but I've been over @ RF for years & I'm sure anyone who knows me from there will vouch for me here.

I've been modding Ford Ovals, painting the Ford script & oval ring one color with the backgrounds another color. In some cases, I can paint the chrome mounting base too.

Currently, I only have 4 1/2" wide ovals to mod, but I've got several people on the lookout for some 4 3/4" and wider emblems for me.

I can NOT mod ALL types of emblems. The newer one piece emblems won't work with my process.
I CAN mod the older 2 piece ovals with the tiny gap between the blue oval & chrome mounting base.

I don't just paint over the top of the emblems (eeew!), I disassemble, sand, (secret process ) , paint, wet sand, buff & re-assemble them.

Here's pics of some of my recent mods:

My truck:












These vary from 4 1/2" to 4 3/4" wide.

In most cases, 4.5" & 4.75" emblems are interchangeable.

On RARE occasions, all of the OEM chrome Ford script/oval ring stay intact & I'm able to paint the background a custom color. These are rare & I have to charge a little more for them.

Updates to pricing:

4 1/2" & 4 3/4" wide ovals, 2 colors w/chrome bases $24.00 each shipped US

4 1/2" & 4 3/4" wide ovals, 2 colors w/pained bases $28.00 each shipped US

5 3/4" wide ovals, 2 colors w/chrome bases $34.00 each shipped US

5 3/4" wide ovals, 2 colors w/painted bases $38.00 each shipped US

7" wide ovals, 2 colors w/chrome bases $40.00 each shipped US

7" wide ovals, 2 colors w/painted bases $45.00 each shipped US

I even supply the oval emblems.
I can appreciate guys/gals wanting to send me brand new ovals to mod, but honestly the OEM adhesive on new emblems sometimes makes it impossible to get them apart... or they'll break during disassembly.

The "old" used emblems I mod work out great, they're usually scuffed & scratched up, the blue paint is peeling or fading... it's nice to bring new life to old stuff.

All the ovals pictured above were just that, scuffed, fading, etc. before I did my magic to them. Most times they'll look as good as new or pretty dang close to it.

I can do several different color combos & I've been lucky enough to mod some that are VERY close to color matched to peoples' vehicles.

I currently can't do custom graphics or lettering, but when I have time I plan on experimenting with new designs.

I don't get in any hurry when I mod these. I do it because I enjoy it... not to get rich. After the price of the ovals, sandpaper, (secret process materials), tape, paint, adhesive & PayPal fees, I don't make that much on them.

Generally, it'll take me about a week to finish an emblem once it's taken apart & (secret process) to remove any remaining paint & chrome.

I do ask that these custom ovals be pre-paid, so I don't get stuck with a bunch of pink & yellow painted Ford ovals

I'm PayPal verified with over 1,000 transactions.

Thanks for checking out my post, enjoy the pics.

This one?


It's Smoke Gray background w/ Blue Ford script/oval.

Just did those for a RF member, almost a perfect color match to his Sonic Blue/Gray truck.

I use a indoor/outdoor silicone adhesive/sealant.
It's similar to silicone caulk but it works outdoors & has more adhesion qualities.

Ford (or their supplier) uses a rubbery glue to attach them & only a small glob at that. Over time it gets hard & brittle... making the blue Ford oval paint chip, peel or break off completely.

The adhesive I use stays more flexible & I use a lot more than Ford does.
