    Debating on swapping the lettering to Discovery or going naked with a "debadged" look on the hood to match the rear of the vehicle. Has anyone on here removed the letters from the hood? If so could you post a photo or two?

    I'd like to see as well, my wife has some dents on the front edge of her RR hood and once we get it fixed and painted she is considering not replacing the lettering.

    I've grown accustomed to the front wording, but really it's just a LR vanity plate if you ask me. lt's ridiculous how all the manufacturers stamp every special model/edition/package with decals and badges inside and out, and embossed/stitched into the headrests, and with cut-outs in shields, and pretty much everywhere. It's nauseating!

    Out of curiosity I did a quick Instagram search on the tag #debadged and was a little surprised that after dozens of pages of scrolling, I didn't see any Land Rovers at all...

    this the same issue i have with mb. there is badging on the grill then as if they were catering to the alzheimer's market there is another badge inches above it.

    you would be surprised as to how few people remove the badges from their //AMG or ///M or /RS vehicles. people often ask why i removed them.

    I swapped all my badges to black badges and letters. I can talk you through the removal process and application, but I did not take any photos. Sorry brother.

    I do have an extra set of black letters though. There was a shipping delay and the seller sent me another one. When they both arrived, seller told me to keep them. Free for me. Free for you if youre interested.

    i appreciate the offer but i am familiar with the removal process... the debate is whether to leave it bare or replace with gloss black discovery lettering. if that is what you have then i may have interest.
