    Opinions please.

    Was cleaning seats earlier and after a bit of foaming, I got this for a short while.


    So question is, do you think this would look smart or not?
    And if so how would I do it properly.
    Thanks

    Not a fan. I'm not sure if there's some way of doing it with some sort of paint, but that'd probably rub/peel off and our end up with what you have there. It could be sewn in, but that'd mean taking off the seat covers completely.

    Was trying to think outside the box, something different.
    It would go with the rest of the interior white on black theme.

    I you're after a black on white look, I'd say piping or stitching would work better (though obviously more work and expense).

    If you like it Buddy, then you should go for it, but as Martin says, it would probably look a lot better if it was stitched in, which would involve a much greater cost. There are some companies on the net who do custom embroidered seat badges that you just stick on, but they look like they have been stitched in. Have a look at these embroidered S-Line car seat badges and see what I mean. I think they look pretty good xx
