PostSubject: Large VW Logo on watercooled rad   Thu Nov 10, 2016 4:05 pm

Hi, I'm just a few days away from taking possession of my first camper!! (photos to follow).

Sorry if this is a stupid question but has anyone tried putting a Large VW badge on the front of a water cooled T2 ?

My bus has a spare wheel on the back & I think it looks a bit strange having 2, so I wondered if a bigger VW badge on the front grill would give it a more retro look ?

I'm sure it's possible. It just depends on what you're going to need to cover up underneath. What year is your BraziBay?

It a 2007, I probably should wait until I've actually got it and can have a good look myself before asking questions, but excitement gets the better of me!

I'm busy trawling the net for ideas while I wait for her to arrive ;-)

Tjcbhill - Whereabouts are you based?

I've got an old Watercooled grille at home. I'll take a look when I get home from work. I have a feeling there will be a hole left if removing the standard roundel.

I have a white one as replaced earlier this year with a chrome effect one. (See profile pic.)
If it's the right size you're welcome to it.

Ok so you are going to have a hole to cover up.


It's possible but you're going to have to put a backing on the new roundel and make it aesthetically pleasing!!

Oh, yes. A bit more to it than I thought. Maybe not worth it. Thanks for looking.

Perhaps you can fill in behind the larger VW badge with a circle of white plastic (perhaps with a few holes in it to assist the air flow?) disguising the existing badge hole. Personally I don't think it matters too much. As you will see it looks very nice already when you get your van up close and personal.

I did wonder about that, but I don't think it's worth all the work for a slightly bigger badge. Just getting carried away while waiting for it to arrive !

Mind you...... I might change the grill above the rad for a chrome one Laughing
