I have used those 2 part plastic clips, and made the hole bigger to accomadte it, and stuck on a badge from the front of an XF, had one lying around, but they are 15 bucks from ford.

Update the door seems to sit a little on the badge, so will need to be recessed, I have removed it for meantime, and will make that my next project.

Looks good!

Does the door seal rub on it or anything?

Re: MY EA Scuff plate mod

Door seal no - Door yes, but only just a little bit, I am going to try and recess the badge, I had one go at it, was not to successfull, came up sorta ok, but I have better plan for attempt number 2.

Will be doing it this weekend so will post results on Monday.

Re: MY EA Scuff plate mod

would running the back of the badge over a belt sander help at all? make the badge a little thinner
