I would like to add a rolls royce winged hood ornament to my 300c

Can someone tell me;

A) is this possible?
B) how do I do it?




Thanks.

A) Anything's possible, but you'd probably have to drill holes in you hood, which takes me to...

B) Why would you want to do this? Why a RR winged ornament?

I think most people would look at it as a form of posing just like putting an SRT8 badge on a non SRT8 car.

Surely someone must make generic hood ormanemts. Maybe even an old Chrysler one.

Here's an old Chrysler Imperial one...


Or a '32 Chrysler one...


Or any number of these - Google Image Result for http://thump01.pbase.com/t6/48/625148/4/73399956.eKJPMzDU.jpg

Makes zero sense to me.. But then again, 26" rims make zero sense to me and putting 26" numbers on the fender to brag about the 26" rims, makes zero sense to me..

I guess I'm just an old fuddy duddy (and I'm not even old yet) :)


On the serious side of things... Your hood and trunk are made out of Aluminum and I would be cautious about bolting anything large and heavy that will be subjected to tons of wind resistance, on an alloy hood.

Not only that, but it shouts, "Hey, pull me off" to a vandal.

Berie,

Been there and had that done to me by vandals!

Remember when Chrysler used to use the crystal pentastar ornaments on the 80's and 90's rides? Had a new 87 LeBaron ragtop with the crystal emblem, a punk kid tore it off and ruined the hood in the process.

Yeah, had that happen to me on my 76 Cordoba. It had those medallion type of ornament and looked like a huge coin. At least it was mounted with a spring though.

Wow thank you Bernie & others,

originally I thought it would give the vehicle that elite look like the old jags and stuff but,

you guys have brought up some really good points and the funny thing is I also wanted to put the srt8 badge on the trunk so I just realized that I'm a soon to be poser.....lol

Oh well, us N***s that don't have $$$ got to front you know what I mean.

But with regards to the hood ornament, You guys have convinced me not to do it.

thanks again Bernie and others for the great help.

Don't feel ashamed. It's his car, so I would think whatever he does with it shouldn't concern anyone but him.

It's one thing to offer constructive criticism, but to offer negative comments helps no one.

I don't believe his request was shameful. Although it's not for me, I certainly don't think it was out of line to ask.

If you are ashamed with this type of request, I would hate to think what you feel regarding those 3CF members who change body parts around to make their 300s appear to be Cs or SRTs.

I'm okay with what anyone is willing to pay to change or enhance their 300 vehicles.

well i am not a fan of the hood ornaments either. I am glad your opting out. but billet technology will make you custom grille emblems very reasonable or they have some pretty cool ones to choose from. To give you indiviuality (sp?).

Your car is sick with what you done to it already.

A couple of ideas.

The second pic is Hemeee's car, as a joke.
Ornament is not really attached.
Okay, in the proper spirit of conviviality I'll just say, for me - my personal tastes only - I'm really, really glad mine didn't come looking like that first one. Kinda hopin' it's a photochop. If not, then I'm really, really hopin' the owner just loves the heck out of it and that they get unending compliments on it every day! :biggrin:
