I thought about doing that until I saw the 63 emblem. Butt-ugly, imo. I went with a decal. Should be said though, that I was never interested in maintaining stock on my 63 as it was pretty much a rescue operation from the get-go. If you are interested in getting/keeping stock then the emblem is what you will want to do. If not, your options are as numerous as the stars. I have seen some pretty sweet looking custom emblems.

my 64 has 3.5 gal stock tanks with emblems, my 65 had the bigger tanks with the same emblems. 64 is red and white, looks great, 65 was solid black, also looked great. some folks don't like that particular emblem, with the white "arrow" But I think it's fine

Technically (gawd that sounds pretentious) nearly all mid-60's civilian tanks had birchwhite panels on the bottom half. (Police units were white, if we trust the literature.)
The curious thing about '65 is that since it was the first year for 5 gallon tanks, any tankshift units had '63-'64 3.5 gallon tanks on them.

That's what I prefer.
