thinking about debadging my car in the future when i have the money. but the problem would be the indents in the body left from the badges. is there a way to fill them in flush with the rest of the car? i would also need a different rear bumper.

you would have to fiberglass them, bondo wont hold long with the plastic.

No to be honest the best way to do it woudl be to make a mold of the bumper, then do teh body work on a re-popped fiberglass bumper, because the fiberglass / bondo WILL not hold up on the plastic, especially being to flexable.

if your gonna go through all that you might as well buy a bodykit, and modify that, and some custom fenders then de badge those, cause fiberglass will still to a fiberglass bodykit :lol:

car was debadged when i saw it on the lot. the guy ordered the badges for it before he sold it to me. idk its just an idea. ill probably just end up getting the special edition black badges and a body kit.

and different subject but just to get some opinions...
when i get a paintjob for the car. im thinking dark gunmetal gray all around. but from the bottom contour line in the body down and all around the car paint black. if anyone is good at photoshop if they could do that for me that would be awesome actually. but how do you think that would look? pretty good i think.

i dunno, saturns have a very distinct look IMO, i can tell a saturn from a mile away in the dark lol (the headlights so narrow together, and the side marker ligths sticking out an inch)

i would opt for the black badges as well

i agree with slayer... my car doesnt say saturn anywhere on it except the valve cover and steering wheel and people dont have a problem figuring out what i drive... well most...

a few products can do what you want... they are made to fill flexible plastic and urethane parts... cost more, but does the job right...
