    Hello. I've always been curious...After a car respray, how do the bodyshop fit the 325, 330 etc badges back on the bootlid and get it exactly as it was originally? I've noticed they always do it dead centre and alligned really well! There must be something they use!? Is it a special tool or something?

    Get rich or die tryin'...

    I remember seeing it for sure.

    I've just tried searching the forum and went back to August but with no joy???

    NealP was probably the one that posted it up. Have to PM him I think

    This is how they do it. The numbers and letters come already aligned ready to stick on

    Thank you Neal you're a star!! Thanks to RYM and Kev for trying to find it too

    When I got my bootlid resprayed, would they have used my existing badges or a new set with the adhesive tape on?
