Is it possible to save the OEM Blue Oval?

Recommended Posts

Is there any "car care" product on the market that will prevent the failure of the Ford logo on the grille? How long has yours lasted before it failed, and what have you tried in an effort to save it? Maybe it can't be saved...

Regular waxing with the rest of the car 'might' have allowed it to last a bit longer but in the end the sun seems to kill all of them.  The oval in the picture is obviously dead.  The good news is you have many many replacement options.  Check eBay, Etsy, Amazon, Pinterest etc.   Someone posted (not too long ago) a way to replace the oval on the Gen2 without completely removing the front bumper/grille assembly.  As I recall he just removed all the bolts on the top allowing him to pull the grill forward enough to get a wrench on the bolts.  A very tight fit but doable.

It was a "file picture" mine is fine, but I just wondered if any of the "new" wizbang care products now on the market would save it before it showed signs of surrendering to the elements.

Maybe a clear vinyl layer? The same used to protect body paint?

The rear emblem on my 2007 only gave up because it hits the hinge on my garage door if it is opened when the garage is opened.  I put rubber over the hinge and put a carbon sticker on the emblem.  The front looks great. after 14 years

Fomoco sells new ones. don't get upset over a used-up one. I have owned prolly about 50 of those over the last 50 years of driving. if you need a pristine one, keep it in a box in the counsel and only put it on during car shows . problem solved.
