My buddy just bought a 2011 Ecoboost and on the inside of his windshield at the top, behind his rear view mirror he has a really cool 'F150' decal. I really like how it looks and after seeing his I now want one for my 03' Heritage Edition.
Doesn anyone know if these are available to purchase? It might not even be a decal, it doesn't really even feel like one. I'm assuming the window might come etched with this on it from the factory maybe?
If anyone can shed some light on this I would really appreciate it !!
Is it for sure between the glass? Because I can feel the decal on the window when I touch it... but it feels much more substantial than just a decal... feels almost rough... and more durable than just a decal.
If I remember correctly, what you're seeing is a ceramic material bonded to the glass when its manufactured. It is not a decal and it is not a paint (in the traditional sense.)
This material gives the urethane glue that OEMS use something better to bond to compared to plain glass, resulting in a stronger bond, which then allows the manufacturers to use the glass as more of a structural component to stiffen the chassis.
At some point the OEMs realized they could also use it aesthetically, and thus we have the F150 logo.
If you want to add this to your logo-less truck, you're going to have to have a graphics shop make a decal for you -- it's pretty much your only option.
