I was looking for the 92x chrome lettering...

...because my 9 fell off (!! - fess up, who took it?).  Anyway, no luck with anyone parting out on this site, and nothing on ebay, so took a chance on a 9-3 lettering.  I'd read there were different sizes, but I lucked out - the big 9 fits exactly where the old one rested (the outline is there, and it's a match).  I guess I already lucked out that the 9 fell off, and not the 2 or x.  Now just have to wait util the temp in northern NY gets above frigid...   (also, I'll move this to another subject if it doesn't belong under for sale/wanted).

Thought about it.  My silver one is, and it's a much smoother look.  How does one remove the "glue" residue from the paint without messing up the paint?

I think most use Goo-Gone, but you can use WD-40 too. I believe 3M makes an adhesive remover wheel that you stick in the end of a power drill and then run it over the offending areas. I personally haven't used it before but the videos that I've seen show it working pretty well. Of course, YMMV.

Traded in the 2005 92x MT two weeks ago, and just "chased" it via VIN and deserve zero forgiveness facepalm; she deserved better than a swap at the stealership. I will forever live in shame...

Regardless, Full chrome "9-2x Aero" (emblem, badge, lettering) with zero defects up for grabs. PM me for how you want to work out getting it out of my sight and mind.

I have three sets of new letters.  They come with the little Styrofoam spacing to ensure you put them on correct.  I suppose I could sell one...
What?  I like having backup parts.   roll

Re: I was looking for the 92x chrome lettering...

As a follow-up, I went out to the driveway this morning, and the snowbank had melted down enough that I spied the missing 9!!  I might have brushed it off clearing the car of snow some wintery morning.  So now I have two 9's (the 9-3 one is the same size EXCEPT it is raised just a bit higher).  Still waiting for warm enough weather to apply it back on.
