everybody that has the "3D" black emblems, where did you get them.

i could have sworn the dealer offered them, but for some reason the local one here at college doesnt think they are offered. can anybody help out with that?

i know some of u have em, what can i do to get them?

go to another dealer im guessing. :mad:

ok, so now that i searched i see that there is a few diy ways to do it.


but either way, is there anything new? and is there any way i can buy these red 3d ones online instead of through the dealer?

i know sps has em, but not necessarily for the ion.

thanks guys!

Typical Saturn "custom work" for black emblems bro.

The ones at SPS are for the S-series.

I painted mine. One day I'm gonna get the carbon fiber adhesive sheet and do that instead.

Rustoleum makes a "direct-to-plastic" spray paint that will take to plastic without any sanding or priming beforehand. Worked pretty well. No chipping or cracking or anything and I've washed it several times since then.

Thanks....I must say the guys/gals on this site are really cool and helpful. One other question and this one may be dumb but Ive never done it. How do you take the symbols off of cars?

The one on the hood is just double-side taped on. Be carefull with this one, I've hear it will break easily.

The ones on the fender are held on with nuts.

I didn't even take my emblems off. I just masked off the emblem and a LARGE area around it. :D

i ought to buy that sheet of carbon fiber and just use that as the back of the emblem and then just glue the other side to the car, thats what i did with my other emblems, worked like a charm.

oh well, we'll see how it goes...
