987 Decal

Recommended Posts

I just bought a 2005 987. I want to do the same thing i did for my 1999 986. I replaced the rear Boxster badge and replaced it with a 968 decal. I just switched it around to read 986. Is there something out their I could use to make a 987 Rear Badge?

There is nothing available from Porsche that I could find. Also have not seen any elsewhere either. You may be able to have a decal made, but short of that I am not aware of any 987 badges.

Some folks on eBay make knock-offs sometimes so you may look there as well.

Thanks for the response. Looked at Ebay nothing... I will have to go to a local print shop and see if they can duplicate something. I dont really want a flat decal. It needs to look OEM.

could try to combine a BMW 7-series emblem (i.e. 740iL) with a 986 emblem to make a 987 yourself... if you get them both from the same aftermarket e-bay place they should have a similar size / finish...

987edit.jpgI made some out of 1/8 stainless and had them lazercut. I will enclose a picture. Took about 3 hours in autocad ,the 9 and the 8 are porsche font and the 7 is what took 3 hours to design. I was thinking of debadging the rear and repalcing with the 987 badge but decided to wait. In the picture i placed the #s by the boxster badge to get an idea as to size and composition. If i were to use them the boxster badge would have to be removed. Sorry,picture is not great but i can email you the same picture but not photobucketized if you are interested in a set.

Use the posted 'Boxster' logo placement distance from the bottom. Then center it left to right.

Zedex did send them to me. I believe it was a one off.

Hi - I'd be interested in the numbers. I think they would look sharp on the car. What would you want for them?

Thanks,

Craig

Got the decals today. Spent about 2 hours making sure they looked right and taking the old decal off. Nice decals from Zedex.
