Nice. Would you mind in sharing that template if possible? You can PM if you'd like. Yea I plan to install once I get home tonight.

Re: HEMI Badge - Gonna add one to the 2014

What I did was take a heavy card stock such as from the back of a note pad or food box (it has to be thick so as to not go under the badge as there is a space the thickness of the foam tape, but not corrugated cardboard) and cut it (using a paper cutter so would be 100% straight and even) to the width of the space that I wanted my HEMI badge under the 4x4 badge. Then I marked the length of the 4x4 on it along with the center of the 4x4. From there I marked the length of the HEMI badge centering it on the center mark from the 4x4 center. I simply took the marked card stock template and pushed it evenly up against the bottom of the 4x4 and taped it in place. Then did a dry placement with tape of the HEMI to double check. Then simply placed the HEMI badge on and removed the template. Perfect placement as eyeballing it can easily be off.

"eyeballing it can easily be off"

On a scale of 1-10 what do you think of the accuracy? Mind you this was a template-less job...all eyeball.

Re: HEMI Badge - Gonna add one to the 2014

Hey Dub, is this the part number for your slanted HEMI:

68085330AC



The one you have in the ebay listing seems to match this one

I'm not sure what the part number is. But the number you posted looks like what was on the eBay listing. Seems like the listing abbreviated the part number.

Mines mopar "OEM" though. There were a few on eBay that seemed to look the same but were shipping from china. I stayed away from all that.

Re: HEMI Badge - Gonna add one to the 2014

Well I ordered one, the ebay seller is a JGC dealer in Texas and seems legit OEM.
Now one to removing my first badge ever. My HEMI straight letter badge has been on for three weeks so it shouldn't be a problem in the summer heat.

Looks real good.....just a tad downward slope from H to I though ... just a tad. The oval is tricky.
