Default redesigned rear volvo badge..

yup i finally figured it out and put it to try and the result is just awsome!!..
I "extended" the volvo badge.. and no i did not buy a new volvo badge. Instead i removed the old one (leaving the L in place) and moved 5inch apart. and walah!!. I am really liking it:

well like i mentioned above ..i did not buy any volvo badge. Instead i removed the "v", "o", "v" and "o" with a dental floss and some rubbing alcohol . I left the "L" in place. I then moved each one 5inch apart from each other. I just picked 5inch because i thought it looked nice. You could move 3inch if one desires.
Anyways i then bought 3M double-sided tape from Home Depot and applied it to the back side of the those 4 letters i removed, cutting the excess tape with a sharp blade.
Thats it.
The only problem i had was removal of the badges. That took some time but i think it was worth it.
I think if you were to buy a new Volvo badge from the dealer it would cost anywhere from $30-$50. This method is way move cheap.
The 3M tape was like $4 and dental floss was like $3. WOW

ya i noticed but when i 1st saw it on a new Volvos it never occured to me to change it on my S80 BUT when i saw it on a similiar 2006 S80 i was blown away and i really like it. So then i started searching online and calling dealers for prices. But they were expensive ..So out of no where when i was looking at my badge i saw that each letters were not connected (like lets say a Lexus badge is..Each letter is connected).
So now its simply removing each letter and moving it.
I think this also gives a presence..
