Installing R/T emblem on spoiler - looking for pointers, advice, etc

Sorry if this belongs in the R/T section ..............


The R/T emblem that I ordered (part # 4806323AB) will be arriving soon, so wanted to see if anyone has any advice/lessons learned/etc that I should take advantage of when installing it on my rear spoiler ................. such as :


- mounting it straight/level
- good adhesion
- left-to-right location (ie just left of the right-hand-side trunk seem)

- other ?




I have a 2010 Detonator Yellow R/T with a black spoiler.




Thanks

just my two bits having done a few...
#1. clean the area where the emblem is to be mounted with windex, simpe green or similar, then again with rubbing alcohal to remove any & all wax, grease, dirt, etc.
#2. I used painters tape to lay down a straight tape line where the bottom edge of the emblem should be once mounted. stand back and look at the tape line from several angles to make sure thats where you want the emblem and its not crooked, canted or what have you. You could use a small bubble level to confirm tape line is straight, but most tiems can be done by eye. The tape is easily adjusted/removed and will serve as the margin or guide for final install.
#3. a little bit of sunshine doesnt hurt..warms the plastic spoiler and will help with a bit faster adhesion.
#4. peel n stick. hold in place for a few minutes and you should be good to go.

Don't waste your time on the cheap ebay emblems either, buy Mopar parts.

Look closely at pictures. I'm on my second HC badge as I placed the first too far right, and too low.

Tape can help, but a bunch of the Mopar badges have this big foam block that surrounds the emblem, which makes lining up to a tape line more challenging.

Yes, clean the surface well.

Check out my " Garage" section for pics. I have pics of both my "DY" RT and my SP with their RT badges and placement.

IMO, I like the edge of the "T" lining up with the trunk lid edge.

Used the eyeballs with a steady hand to install.

Good luck.

Take your time, eyeball it, temporarily tape it in position, repeat until you find the desired placement. I used a small level to place a strip of white artists tape above the R. I preferred it away the lid edge, I have an '18 RT so I'm sure your spoiler will have different size/shape.

I bought mine like this, but I really like it. Thinking about changing the front to script instead of the stock block style.
