Is it not possible to swap the badge over?

The badge seems rather difficult to swap over, whereas the entire grille is held in with several clips. No tools required at all.

Today, I felt well enough to drive, so I went to the scrappy for a wander about. I found a 56 reg Mondeo Zetec with a perfect condition grille and badge. Thus:


It's subtly different to the Ghia X spec grille that came off. The 'mesh' in this grille is more open, as in fewer but larger holes.

This is also the first time I've driven it since I drilled extra holes in the air box. You wouldn't notice if you didn't know what it sounded like before, but it's just a tiny bit deeper on the induction noise without being silly. I like it. I am fully aware it probably doesn't release any extra ponies. I just wanted it to sound slightly better when I pressed the throttle.
