Default debadging?

i am seriously considering debadging my b3000. the only real issue i will have is the three holes behind the rectangle badges (that say b3000) on the fenders, anyone have an opinion on debadging? would it take away from the spirit? i like the idea of a smoother look. i am already removing the chrome trim, and definatly taking off the vinyl pinstriping and large mazda, v6, and se, emblems off the tailgate.

Do it, then fill the holes and repaint the fenders

I dont like the idea unless you put a newer style on it. But that is just my opinion

I like it on some classic vehicles, and some heavy custom jobs.

I voted no because it makes a regular everyday vehicle look cheaper (imho). Reminds me when body shops remove them when they do extensive work, if that makes sense..

Debadging is ok (IMO) on the lowered street customs, but I like a truck that tell others what brand/model it is
For someone to "debadge" a truck, to me, means that they are embarrassed by it.
I love the fact my truck has the "Ford" & "Ranger" emblems on it!

I've always been against doing so. If anything, throw more on. I added a Ranger XLT badge to my tailgate, large ford emblem, and a 4X4 emblem off a 95 Bronco. Looking to replace that one with black 4X4 one from the newer Explorer.

On an every day vehicle no. On a heavily customized vehicle, sure.

I voted debage but maybe I'd consider modding the badge first like black chrome.
