Hi Dan. Fitted the stickers at the weekend. Myself and my wife were a bit confused about how to get the badge off the backing. We persevered and managed to separate the badge from the backing with a scalpel. It wasn't easy though.

Any chance of a guide (with pics)? I think it would be really helpful for other people.

Anyway, they look great and as mentioned elsewhere in this thread, you would have to be looking very carefully to spot that they are stickers.

Thanks again Dan.

How does the "Alfa Romeo"-text look like, does it reflect in goldly-like manner as an original badge?

Yes. I think will have to prepare proper manual with pics - got lots of qs about that.

Just to confirm. In thailand we don't have many facelift models. I perceive the facelift model to be what is Chucky's car, the silver 156, which needs the 73mm badge.

So what I want is probably the 72mm badges, right? We all have 2004 156 TS. Some people said I have a facelift model, but I think this is rather "minor change".

Chucky said he needs to ask us the car color. Is that relevant?

There were 2 facelifts-the first one looked the same on the outside (apart from having painted rubber strips on the bumpers), but had a redesigned dash, the second also had different front and rear ends-it sounds like you have the first facelift.

Just a quick reply to say many thanks for my badge stickers. I had to wait for a complete new front badge because the original was too damaged to apply the sticker effectively, but at least now the sticker will preserve the original for longer. I am very happy with the effect and the quality of the product. They could be a little easier to apply (consider a perforation across the diameter of the sticker paper behind) but if you are serious about making a good job of it then it is fine. Well worth the money IMO.

Agreed. Thanks a lot. So I should need the 72mm badges.

And ditto on the sticker installation guide. Someone said to use water to avoid bubbles. I started to be worried at that point!

I have to agree with others here. Only die-hard Alfa fans would spot the sticker and if you wax it then it looks all shiny and nice. Okay so the the lettering isn't "gold" but Dan has done a good job with the colour match - something 8% cyan, 20% magenta, 100% yellow for the technically / repro minded here.

The graphics are excellent and very well reproduced and I like the idea of sticking it over an original badge to preserve it.

I checked on ebay some time ago and could only find front badges at about 40 I have just fitted one of these stickers supplied by Chucky and it is fantastic. A little bit fiddly to affix but given the cost of replacement then it gets my vote and the 73mm fits perfectly and also lays over the indentations nicely without rucking up. Don't know how long it will last in rain etc but if there are any issues I will let the forum know. See below.

I will need to get alloy center cap sizes so you can look at making badges for them. This sound like something you would be intersted in doing?

I d be interested in 65mm ones for aftermarket rims, standard Alfa ones are 55mm.

Could you do a "gold" edge round the outside though, like the standard ones ?

Our main man is on a trip overseas.

Still waiting on an installation guide. Someone said to splash water on it, and others said it looks good after waxing it (I hope they were talking about the stickers)...

Details please!

Don`t need to use water. Wax is a qood idea.

stick on badges

Hi mate,

Received my 147 boot badge and must say that that it was easier to get in place that I thought. Looks great and much better than my old sun-bleached badge.

Cheers!
