Default Is the ///M on the valve cover replaceable?

The /// slashes on mine have peeled up a little bit. Was hoping I could just replace it and it wasn't difficult.

The ///M badge is not "real" to begin with. Your car been a long time so replacing the "///M" probably doable.

It's replaceable. A little pricy so I recommend FCP Euro so if it ever fades or falls apart in the future it is backed by the lifetime warranty.

Part number 11617831266

Go this route. I did mine two years ago and it still looks good as new.

Yeah, this is great! Thanks for the headsup here. Didn't realize it would just fade again soon and $50 for a new one that will fade again isn't worth it.
