C63 Badges directions

Hello folks. I just got my missing trunk badges for my C63bs, but I'm affraid I can't put them in the exact right position.

Do any of you guys have the measures to put them? I'm talking about the "C63" on the left side of the trunk and the "AMG" on the right. I imagine if I can put the amg badge in the correct place, the "Black Series" badge will just fit perfectly.

Thanks in advance.

Ps.: MB dealer wants to charge me around 200usd and keep the car for a whole day to do it. Other then the fact that hell no, i'm not gonna pay that, I don't have any free business day to spend there with the car. Have to do it on sunday, when I have some free time. Would appreciate any help.

I can not take credit for this as another member here posted this for me when I basically asked the same question. Helped me a lot....hope it helps you.

"Measured at the top of the C, using the line of the top of the badge it is 1.5" left to the trunk gap and 1.5" up to the spoiler.
The gap between C and 6 is 1". The gap between 6 and 3 is 3/8".
The distance from spoiler to top of the 3 on the right hand edge is 1.75" (a 1/4" drop from the C as it follows the curve of the trunk).
On the AMG side, it is 2" drop to the left top corner of the badge and 1.75" to the top right corner of the G.
The G is also 1.5" from the right hand trunk gap when using the line made by the top of the badge."

LOL, I forgot how confusing this could turn out to be as here in Brazil we use metric system and you guys in the US do not.

But that's already great help! Just to make sure: 1,5" = inch, right?

Thanks!

...yes, inch = "
foot = '
(1' = 12")
Good luck.

FF. W212 E63 M156 non-pano 18" P2 ParkT NightV (gone but will be missed).
Here is an even easier way from another mbworld thread but I have never tried it:
Buy or borrow a black light. Shine it on the location and you will see the exaction location of the previously removed badges.

Just ending this thread as I managed to glue the badges already using the measures the friend above just posted. Regarding that matter, I think a better way of doing it would be measuring it not with the top of the trunk lid, but with the line that goes right under those badges, as they are a straight parallel line. Thanks anyways for the help!
