2011 Saleen Grille Emblem?

I bought the Saleen grille and installed it last weekend. However, there is a small part in the grille in which there is a space for the Saleen emblem. Anyone have any ideas or know of any badges to put in there? I guess I could just dremmel it out, but I would like to put something in there, but don't know/can't find anything for that space... Any ideas?...

Thanks in advance...

Pony tri-bar or a 5.0 emblem that could be made to fit.

Do you have a pic of the grill installed?

My pics don't really show it too well:



But here you can see where the Saleen emblem is... there is just a piece of black plastic on my grille:

Neal didn't you get that email I sent you with the link to the place that makes the badges we talked about? If not here is the link bro. the 7" long 1/2" thick would work perfect for that space

I cut mine out with a sharp razor knife. The grill is almost like rubber and it's pretty easy to do. Do it from the backside and take your time.

I saw the site, but didn't see the emblems the first time around on the ipad. Those are awesome man!! Now to get red or black is the question...

Me I would do red so it stands out but if you want subtle black background is the way to go. Either way the 7"1/2' is perfect for that space. Now what about those headlight splitters?

I thought these '5.0 Coyote' emblems would look good on the Saleen grille if they will fit.

Where did you purchase the grille from? I love the way it looks and appears that it allows much more air in compared to the stock unit that blocks that area off.

Yeah the grille allows a lot more air to get into the induction tube that flows into the intake.

I got the grille from Blow By Racing. It's the Saleen grille... I love it!

Where did you get the emblem?? I have the saleen grill now and ran into the same issue.

Also I went with the smoked projectors from american muscle and think they turned out pretty good. Just giving you another option

2010 GT, Ford racing hot rod cams, 1.5" drop springs, msd ignition coils, roush cold air, bama tuning, American Racing long tube headers, 3" catted x-pipe, 3" piping back to the borla stinger axlebacks, gt4 18x9's in the front, 18x10's in the back. Not sure on power yet. Last dyno before the header/xpipe I was at 301/314

I just finished the install of the Saleen grille on my 2012 GT and installed the 5.0L Coyote V8 emblem which is red and black. Whatever emblem you choose, you gotta have some red in it to make it stand out. Here's a before and after pic.

Question Another Saleen grill

Our Saleen grills let way more air in... MAYBE this is why I had hood flutter at 150 ?? And I think the straight lines of the radiators clash with the curves of the Saleen grill. I'll try blacking out the radiators/silver behind bumper . ...
