Did you by chance notice if there is anything from the back holding the ST emblem on? Im getting one made blacked out and of course I had my bumper off and was too into that Ford emblems process to notice at the time lol

I honestly can’t remember, but I will have the bumper back off this weekend and I’ll check it out.

Lol thanks. From looking at it, appears it's just double sided tape but wanted to verify before I start pulling. Probably won't have the emblem for a couple weeks anyway.

Got my "ST" emblems from OEM AutoMart today...I'm pleased with them was pricey but it annoyed me not all being blacked out. 20200515_124736.jpg 20200515_124916.jpg 20200515_124801.jpg 20200515_124742.jpg

There’s no “easy” way to change the front badge, huh?
Unfortunately not, but it's honestly not that big of a deal, if you watch the video and have a helper to hold it you don't even need to take the whole thing off you can just pull it back enough to get in there and secure the nut. If you have power tools etc it should be about an hour job.

I watched the bumper removal video. The guy had his wife holding the camera. On each step, it looked like he was sighing. There are A LOT of screws/plugs/sensors to remove/disconnect.
The guy used an ironing board to keep the bumper elevated while doing the work. Saved him from disconnecting a lot more of the sensors.

He must have definitely over-complicated it. I took out all the bolts/screws/fasteners, pulled back one side of the bumper just enough to get my arm in there to do the nut while my wife held it level, then pushed it right back on and put all the fasteners back in.

That cuts the work IN HALF! I like that idea much better than the whole bumper.

Did you remove all the screws out the bottom (skid plate) too or half of them?

I did them all on the bottom, I actually didn't do the opposite side I was pulling from of the top fastener to the fender (which was the most difficult one IMO) and it worked just fine I just pulled it back enough to get an arm in there to do the swap.

I hear that, thank you. One other issue is just finding a place to do the work...I live in the city and don’t have a garage and prefer not to do it on the street but I’ll figure something out! Thanks again

I got a garage, but there is not a lot of room (barely fits two cars). I got to put half the vehicle out of the garage just to work on it. Now it is time to find a few hours to set aside to take on the task. It may take you an hour, it'll take me longer.

Just got done rebadging the Ford emblems. I took off the explorer from the hood so I can clear bra it. Debating on putting it back on.
