    So I was in an accident in August last year and I finally got my car back. With a few custom additions:

    The logo was airbrushed and clear coated. The side silver logos are the ones from Defenderwerx available at bbts. Not pictured is the Autobot patch sewn into the dash cover and the Transformers license frame on the back (also from bbts). After almost a year, my Bee is back!

    Cool. Although the Autobot symbol on the roof looks really unhappy. :p

    Thanks everyone, it's great to have my Bumblebee back! It's a 2002 so I've already had it for quite a while, but the logos are new.

    The work was being done at a community college as part of their automotive collision repair training program. As such, it took a lot longer than just taking it to a standard repair shop. The upside is that the repairs were cheaper, I only had to pay for parts.

    Thanks again guys. It is nice to have it back, but after almost a year of not driving I'm getting used to it again. It is comfortable though.

    I actually do have a model of the New Beetle and some Alternators parts that I plan to customize into and Alts. Bumblebee. That's a loooooong way off though.

    *cough* knockoff! *cough*

    seriously, though, it's pretty cool. Drop the windows, crank up the '86 movie soundtrack ("Nothing's Gonna Stand in Our Way", would be great) and enjoy the 'Bee!

    They're the regular Autobot symbols (as compared to the Decepticon logos put out by the same company which are definitely not the movie ones). They're just silver instead of red.

    "The touch" also sounds good over the stereo system lol.
