Good thing the A/C works like a champ.

    I have all the badges on mine and people still ask me all the time what it is... It was cool at first.

    Have all badging. Guy walked up in parking lot this week and asked if my VX was something new, LOL. Not bad for a 13 year old SUV. I plan on keeping all the badging.

    Keep it

    I looked for a long time to find my Proton, and didn't even call on the ones with no badges. Mine is factory-fresh, garage-kept...and ready for my cityboy cruisin' lifestyle! People are gaga over my Proton..if I park it somewhere, I have to rush away or people will run up and ask me all kinds of questions.

    I just de-badged mine. I think that the skinned Ebony just looks SEXY.

    If anybody removes their "Vehicross" badges from the sides I need a good clean pair. Please contact me at ahdoman@gmail.com.

    My got "debadged" because it was repainted. I only have "VX" on the grill and on center wheel caps. It is entertaining to watch people walk around the car trying to figure out what it is .

    The only badges that will be on my VX when it rolls from the shop will be the "VX" on the grill and this custom badge I had whipped up for the tailgate.

    Thumbs up

    That is awesome V. I would like to check your VX once it is all finished.
    Good luck in the process of putting everything together V.

    I still like the idea of putting SeaDoo logos on the Proton: Jumping dolphin on the grill, BRP on the hood insert, & 'Powered by Rotax' on the front fenders. It'd look awesome when towing the PWCs or boat. Prolly get so many questions though that I'd go nutz...er.

    Hello to all. Without wanting to go against the flow with this DE-badge thread, I'm going to :-)

    Having given up trying to find any for sale, I'm in the early stages in getting aftermarket "VehiCROSS" decals re-manufactured.
    The company concerned, is based in the UK, and they actually make the badges for a number of high end car marques, so I'm hoping they can reproduce exact replicas, materials, scale, contour and colour.

    At this stage, I'm looking to get a small sample batch, but as my VehiCROSS was de-badged, I have nothing physical to compare with.

    So this is a call for help from fellow Vehicross owners.
    Does anyone have any old badges, (condition is not so important), the aim is to use one as a template, for 3D scanning, and for correct materials identification.

    At this stage, I don't expect to make any profit from this exercise, but the price is going to escalate, and the accuracy suffer, if the engineers have to work from photos alone.

    So, an honest offer at this stage. If any member is prepared to donate 1 old badge set, and post that to me in the UK, I will do the following.
    If we can get a suitable replica, I will post you back 2 replica badges at my cost.
    If the company can't do the job, I have 2 backup options, but if all should fail, I will post back your original badge.

    Should this be successful, and by then I will have some pricing, and update everyone, but in the mean time, if anyone is interested in potentially purchasing such replicas, please PM me, I'll tabulate numbers etc.
    For example if we have 50 committed buyers, I can look to have a batch made.
    I'm not looking to profit from this exercise, so any price would be cost+p&p

    Thanks for your help everyone
    Cheers

    There is a guy on the VehiCROSS Facebook group from Russia that is doing this already. You can check those out over there.
