    Rear 'A' Emblem

    Hello all...

    Unfortunately, I had the privelage of some dude's shopping cart scratching the paint within the rear 'A' emblem on the trunklid and damaging the emblem itself. I was considering just removing the damaged emblem and replacing it with a red or white aftermarket 'A' emblem to temporarily cover the damage. The height of the OEM emblem is around 4 1/4 inches (11cm). Is there a universal fit application out there in that size that would do the trick? I'm having a hard time finding one that will work.

    Thank you.

    The way the trunk lid curves you'd have to go OEM at this point, unless you get creative.

    OE is probably the only way like trentimus said.

    If you get the emblem off, or if you already know, see if the A emblem has two prongs that hold it to the trunk or if its just adhesive... Please and thanks!
