720S Logo -“s in a different color?

Has anyone done this with MSO? I want my “S” in yellow instead of red. Has anyone changed the color on theirs?

I was planning on having the PPF guys do this once I got to that point...I understand vinyl film works pretty well for this.

An adage from the misspent youth of my skydiving days: "Slow is smooth, and smooth is fast..."

My vinyl guy said he wouldn't do it... said it won't last and wont look good in comparison to painting.

Ordered just a standard set of badges from my local McLaren dealership and had them painted to suit my
brake calipers. Looks fantastic It's a really subtle change that just completes the look.

Asked my dealer about it some weeks ago, said new CI does not allow to do it anymore , even if MSO. Only way is aftermarket which they also do on their new deliveries if someone asks for it (do it in their in-house paint shop)

I would just tweak yours.

I didn't think the chrome 720 went together with the blackout accents I had on the reflectors and turn signals, so I just took out the existent ones and painted them black, and then reapplied them.

How easy were they to remove? Are they just stuck with adhesive?

Yes, 3M VHB. Very easy to remove and install. We removed mine for the ppf install as I didn’t want any cutout around the 720S logo. While it was off we painted the S then just added new 3M VHB tape and stuck them back on

No reason to MSO when you can paint for probably << 10% what they will charge you

Piece of cake - use a hair dryer or a heat gun, then some dental floss - they really come off without much effort.
