No Manta A G/T E stuff yet, although it would be real cool to have those manta rays on my fenders.
I got some of the Manta ray side emblems years ago from Germany (just found them on a shelf in my barn in fact), and decided that rather than risk the rare emblems on a racecar, I would transfer the Manta ray outline via another method.
I traced the emblem onto some thin card stock, and cut out the shape with an x-acto knife. I now have a template, which I will use to spray-paint an emblem onto each side of the GT-4 Manta while it's still in the base-coat phase of painting, then I'll clear-coat over the painted-on emblems.
On a similar note, for my hillclimb Manta I had taken a rear 'Rallye' emblem and made a mold from it with flexible molding silicone, and poured a few new 'emblems' with Devcon aluminum epoxy. I then painted them as the originals, and siliconed them to the front fenders (flared). Looks kinda cool, and I don't worry about losing them because I can make more....
