Happy New Year all.

I've just polished up the aluminium windscreen garnish very successfully, and have removed the Honda badge in the process. I've had a shot at Gold leafing the badge with so-so success, and have an gold flying Eagle emblem that will fit quite well, but it doesn't really appeal to me as I thought it might.

Something has to go there as there are the two holes from the Honda badge to cover up. I dont yet want to update the garnish itself.

I know I could order an replacement Honda badge, but would like to know if there are other possibilities, Honda or otherwise, other than the Honda or Eagle.

Thanks

The guys at electrical connection used to have these illuminated or non illuminated Honda logos that I thought looked pretty nice... however they elude me on their website this morning... you might give them a call.

I pretty sure the owner is a member here...

Thanks us385. There's some interesting stuff on that site. I'll send them an email asking about illuminated logos - they sound interesting.

Interestingly, mine already has a gold H emblem on the rear that I assume has been added by a previous owner as I havent seen one in numerous pics I have searched. It's placed just above the lock.

I've done some searching based on what you chaps have said above & spotted this site - car emblems yes, but a Honda is a Honda, & the old Civics weren't much bigger than my GW. Certainly the engines weren't :)

True. But the car division has always been separate according the Honda regs.
In 1976 as a part manager at the Honda M/C shop, we investigated getting the car dealership being offered when we heard of the Civic 600 being imported, we would have had to build or have a separate building. The boss said no.
