That's a good write up.

It should be noted that not all Ford ovals can be modded.

I've been doing the 2 piece ovals (like that article uses) for a while now.
I go a little further in my modding by removing the chrome Ford script & chrome oval ring using my super secret process and I paint the Ford script/oval as well.

Not sure what type of emblem your vehicle has, but since it's an older one like mine, it probably has the 2 piece ovals.

The newer ovals are basically a one piece unit that can't be taken apart, while some are a "gel filled" type that can be modded, but require a special epoxy to refill after painting/masking the insides.
I haven't tried to mod the "gel" type, mostly because the 2 piece ovals keep me pretty busy, but I haven't found an epoxy that remains perfectly clear once it cures.
