"Leaper" on wing

I thought the wing / rear would look a bit better without the leaper on the wing. I could see it was held on with the tape so common these days for various badging items, so out came the hair dryer and off came the cat. Oops! The cat has two pegs under it and there are two corresponding holes in the wing so it can be perfectly placed. Happily I didn't damage it so back she went. In the past I have bent or broken some of the badges I've taken off, but it didn't matter. I'm glad that in this case I didn't have to find out how much a leaper costs (or how long it would take to get one).

Pacifica, "leaper" is the nickname given to the Jaguar jumping cat symbol. On many of the older sedans it was the basis for the hood ornament.
