Do it yourself. You can buy a roll on Amazon for about $10 and you would have enough to redo it ten times. It wouldn't be that hard. A hair dryer, a plastic putty knife and a xacto knife is all you need. Spray some soapy water on handle and apply the vinyl. Use the hair dryer lightly to shape it, press out air bubbles with the putty knife, then trim excess with the knife.Can anyone comment on the vinyl shop's reply? Not sure if that's a legit concern for the chrome 'issue' as well as the $300 price?
One man's opinion: It looks too much like a black bar to me. From some distance away even the F350 (or F250 depending on the particular model) in the vent looks just like a blob of black. I do like the black background, but would prefer some degree of contrast in the lettering so it was...www.fordtremor.com
Holy smokes, sounds like they really don’t want the business…Just received a reply from the vinyl shop I mentioned earlier. I tried to explain the simplicity of the job/persuade them to reconsider and here is their response. Not sure what to think of this?
I spoke with the team and we can do this. However, we cannot warranty the installation. Like mentioned in my previous email, there is a higher risk of failure with vinyl being applied over chrome. This would fall under our project minimum of $300+tax using matte black material.
No, I wish I could help. Sounds like they are really covered up and it’s not worth their time or ???You have any shops in mind that could help me?
Got caught up in the tailgate vinyl, I guess I glossed over your comments in reference to these badges - yes, I agree.If someone can make high quality 6.7 and powerstroke badges with Rapid Red letters, now we're talking!

I like the red also, but not sure it looks quite right in the same view with the stock black/grey “6.7L POWER STROKE".
Now if you could do red on black with those also…
They make a version of the ones @Tx-Tremor6.7 has (I believe BroncoHooves has the same ones), but with red letters. They probably won't match the Rapid Red, but they do give an idea on how the they would look with red letters - great!Oh yeah your on to something there I like that idea as well
A member here gave them to me. If I don't use them, I will give them to someone else eventually.Got caught up in the tailgate vinyl, I guess I glossed over your comments in reference to these badges - yes, I agree.
What was your source for the blacked out version, and I guess those aren’t available OEM? Mine is Iconic Silver, I’d like a black version as well but don’t want to switch if the quality isn’t the same.
At least the OEM 6.7 Power Stroke is more of a matte grey vs glossy.
Those are dead sexy! Would those pop on my star white? I mean I had to pay 10K to even sport those badges!They make a version of the ones @Tx-Tremor6.7 has (I believe BroncoHooves has the same ones), but with red letters.

This seller needs some slightly better pictures. Just saying...
Link for the badges with red!
And the post I got the link from:
I just removed them completely... Just to confirm... I can remove the 6.7 Badges as well as the Power Stroke badges and there’s no pins or holes remaining? If so... awesome. Now that I have a Platinum trim it’s taking some getting used to. The fact it’s growing on me must mean I’m...www.fordtremor.com
Correct, no factory option available for blacked out engine emblems.Not to muddy up your build thread, but do I understand correctly - black OEM 6.7L Power Stroke door badges are not a factory option, even with the black appearance package?
Frustrating that they offer the F250/F350 but can’t match the door badges.
Most people with the Ford Power Steps simply remove the chrome piece because it is black behind it.I’m in same boat. I want quality black emblems or black with rapid red. Waiting on a quote from tint/wrap shop to wrap the tailgate and chrome strips on power steps and install the new Tremor logo also. Our trucks are going to be similar, lol.
As a quick comparison, I had my full roof (no moon roof), stinger hood, both b-pillars and the tailgate handle wrapped for $895 from Signville in Spring TX. (north of Houston) I agree a small company needs to charge some kind of a minimum, but $300 for a 12”x1” piece of vinyl is excessive. $50-100 would be reasonable.No, I wish I could help. Sounds like they are really covered up and it’s not worth their time or ???
Maybe I’m out of touch on the subject, but $300 minimum? Can’t be that difficult/time consuming of a job - don’t know if showing them in person would make a difference?
And for $300 that mothergrabber better be guaranteed for life!!!
