SS badge for front grill to replace bowtie

I did a forum search but didn't find anything useful and had too many results with the word combinations I tried. Feel free to link to another thread if I missed it. I've seen plenty of SS emblems on 5th Gen but haven't seen many on 6th Gen.

As you can infer, I want to remove the red SS badge and replace the bowtie with a similar size SS badge. But I want the old school bubble-letters with white or gray inlay, not the style that we have in red.

I don't mind fabricating some custom bracket or modifying the bowtie bracket. I don't want a $10 eBay cheapie. Curious what other 6th Gen users have done and if the angles on the newer SS models match the angles for the replica emblems.

Jegs seems to have a good selection of higher quality emblems. YearOne does as well.

Or does it look silly since the styling is so different on the 6th gen and that's why it seems to work on the 5th gen.

Some quick photo editing, i'm not sold yet:




Thoughts?
