Finally got to finish the trio! Luckily I learned from my difficult time of the back and applied a new strategy! Also there was about 1/3 less adhesive on the front so that helps too! So happy with the look!

Nice work, wow that looks really nice on your SWP. About how long would you say it took to do the front emblem? install

Thanks! I would say 10 minutes to saw with crappy floss (kept ripping). About 15 minutes to remove all of the excessive adhesive. The back took me an hour.

I highly recommend putting a piece of paper under the edge to guide the floss under the badge....

Not bad at all. I did mine in a little over an hours as well, because I took my time and didn't want to damage my paint like I did on the optima. :lol:

When I did mine on my old Optima, it was blazing hot outside and I literally just ripped the front emblem off in like 2 minutes and the adhesive came off with it. :)

Just ordered a set of Black K5 emblems in Luxury White to add a nice pop on my Snow White Pearl Optima! Can't Wait!
Thank you for placing an order with us online! :)

Post up some pics once you get them installed.

I wish it were that easy for me. On my Optima and K900 it took about an hour for me to do both front and rear emblems. Then again if you're removing aftermarket emblems, I think it's a bit easier than removing the OEM ones the first time around.

I did my emblems today, Front was a pain. Other than that was pretty easy. Forgot a pic of the steering wheel.

Thank you for posting up pics for us. If you get a minute, post one up of the steering wheel emblem too. :grin:

Looks very nice
Yup I think so too! I've been debating changing out the ones I have on my K900 for these new black edition ones.

Not sure if this was asked but... Do the emblems come made for 2015 curved truck lid?
The "Black Edition" emblems do not contain any metal and therefore are very flexible.

They do fit on both the 2011-2013 models as well as the 14-16 models that have the curved trunk lid. There is no prepping or shaping the emblems that is necessary with the "Black Edition" emblems.

So you will have no issues installing them on the 2015 model right out of the package. ;)
