Quick Emblem Removal
Many people heat the orignal Mustang emblem badge with a hair dryer to loosen the double sided tape. Fishing line or dental floss held in each hand can be pulled behind the emblem to finish seperating it from the Mustang body. Once started, the emblem badge can be removed by placing a thin flat object between emblem and body being careful not to scratch paint. Apply light steady pressure to break the seal of the double sided tape and gently pry and pull until the emblem is free of the body.
Is it time to replace your 5.0 emblem on the side of your Fox Body Mustang? Maybe you have sent your Foxbody off to paint and you aren't sure exactly where the new 50 emblems should go back onto your Mustang. Most people may not realize that these were installed by hand on the Ford assembly line. Unlike later year model Mustangs, these did not use alignment tabs and holes in the fender. Thus making it hard to determine the exact spot these emblems show go back into.
Follow along with Jmac as he shows you how to remove and install new 5.0L Mustang Emblems back into their proper place. The emblem removal process will work on any emblem that is held on with 3M style adhesive tape.
These emblems will fit the following year model Mustang GT LX SVT Cobra: 1979 (79) - 1980 (80) - 1981 (81) - 1982 (82) - 1983 (83) - 1984 (84) - 1985 (85) - 1986 (86) - 1987 (87) - 1988 (88) - 1989 (89) - 1990 (90) - 1991 (91) - 1992 (92) - 1993 (93)
1979 to '93 Mustangs equipped with the five liter engine are also equipped with this chrome five liter fender emblem. Now, if yours looks a little bit like this, it's definitely in the wrong spot. But then again, who's to say what the right spot is? Because the factory really didn't have a template. They just kind of stuck it in a general direction.
But this one needs to be a little bit more centered, a little further up, and definitely more level. Removal of the emblem is pretty simple. Just take some masking tape, and tape around the emblem to protect the paint. Then you can use either fishing string or a putty knife to break the tape loose from the paint.
Once the emblem's out of the way, go ahead and remove your tape, clean up the entire area, and then use an eraser wheel to remove whatever tape residue is left.
Then you can use the template for locating the fender emblem. This can be downloaded off of latemodelrestoration.com's website. Peel and stick.
Now you want to repeat this same process for the other side. And man, that really made a good improvement on this '90 coupe.

I have a zinc yellow 2003 Mach1. Several years ago some ahole ran a shopping cart into the drivers side between the wheel and door just above the stripe. It was hardly visible but it still bothered me. At the time I thought, well I could always put an emblem on it as it was in the perfect spot for it, I am not crazy about putting them on if they were not OEM as sometimes they look tacky. I ran across the 4.6 High Performance emblem and thought that it looked pretty good. On a whim I got an estimate from a body shop to fix it which was $100. At less than $20 for these I figured, why not. I am sorry I didn't do it sooner. They look great and it also keeps people at shows from asking me "does it have a 5.0 in it". Went on with no problem. I would advise you not "wing it" and stick it on like they do at the factory. Use a grease pencil to mark guidelines just outside the area you want to stick it to. You only get one chance to get it right so make sure it is properly aligned by hovering slightly over the spot and carefully apply.
