Badges we don't need no stinking Badges!!

Or do we?

Ok so I just got my tank repainted to fix a few scratches ... was thinking about going badgless or maybe one of the old styles. Maybe even some pinstripes or something

My scrambler is a clean slate right now OD Green. What do you think? maybe a hand painted logo?

Personally, I like the clean, simple look of a decal/transfer. Your options are far greater as well....

I'm confident you can find something you like here.

I'm leaning towards the no badges option on mine as well. In the same dilemma, small dent in tank, once I fix and repaint I'm thinking of a simple logo and some pin-striping / graphics with painted or decal logo. The hard part is deciding how to paint the tank, so many ideas swirling around in my head.

It's too bad no one offers a tank badge similar to this: http://americanmetalsign.com/custome...roller=product
