I'm a firm believer that the original badging and where it's mounted counts as part of the cars originality.
My tip is to go to the Ford dealer and ask for a print out of the badge location for your model in there spare parts catalgue, they should have the badge location in the data.
Failing that find a car similar to yours and use a paper type tape measure (Ikea ones are the best and you can get it free) and get the dimensions, top, bottom left right. It took me an hour to get the measurements right but it's worth it in the end.
