This morning I noticed that the emblem on the trunk of my car was stolen...

What makes this worse is the car was parked in my driveway and the punk gouged the paint on the trunk with the tool used to remove it (looks like it was screwdriver)

Ugh...

I talked to the Police. They told me there has been a rash of emblems being stolen in our town for the past few days. He recommends I hold off replacing the emblem for a while.

Anyway....

Does anyone know of a simple chrome ring to fit around the trunk key hole to give it a finished look? Links?

I'll probably replace the stock emblem but I'm curious.


Thanks....

Punk-a$$ lookin' t' get his neck snapped.

In the meantime, maybe you can get a local vinyl/sign shop to whip up a magnetic rear deck blackout panel for you. Can't imagine it'd be too pricey.

I asked if they were targeting Mustangs.

He said it was all different types of cars. I guess I was just one of the luck Mustang owners.... ;)

when I was back in school people would pop the emblems off the front of cars and mount them on belt buckles.

Excellent point!

I did put some touch up paint over the scratch. A lazy no prep effort. It didn't look so hot. Being that it's under the panel, no one ever has to see it....
