87 Cutlass Euro Header Panel Emblem. Repairable?

Postby V6UnderPressure on Sun Apr 01, 2012 10:00 am

Take a look at my emblem. I recently purchased a NOS one. So I am wondering if something can be done to this one to get it repaired? I thought about removing the plastic coating and maybe having it painted gold to go with the gold trim. To me it should have been done like this anyhow. Has anyone done this before? Can it be done. And if not, anyone wanna buy this one? :rofl:

I have no idea. It came off a 19k mile 442, so I'm thinking some sort of soap/cleanser got underneath the rocket logo.

I cracked open the emblem on mine too and painted it black instead of red. It looks a lot better than it did.

Where did you purchase your NOS Euro Header Panel Emblem from?

Does anyone have an original for sale that is in good condition?
