i shaved my emblems...i think it looks better w/o them..plus no one will jack them. And when someone jacks them u have holes in ur car. I shaved off my emblems because i was gunn paint my car and do body work. i juss took off the emblem fill it up with bondo let it dry and sand it down real nice. i took off the ACURA SIGN ACURA EMBLEM in front and back.

they are pretty commmon...but theres a house in the back ground so its confusing.


something i learned from the T-I articles...those places are no good...cheap soaps and waxes are used and the car doesnt get as clean or shiny or treated as lovingly as it should be =)

Depends on if you have the money or not. If you don't then don't shave them b/c its not like its something that makes the teg look bad. I presonally like the shaved look and shaved all the stuff at once then got it painted. LOL... after you shave and mold your whole car it take about 10 minutes less to wash and dry.

Note - I changed the pic to a better one.

Yeah it's Wings West W-Typ kit. I'd say you shave it JR. Its not like you can't jsut slap the emblem back on (I dont see why you would though
) If you dont do it now...the nest time you decide you wanna shave the emblem, you'll have to repaint it.

Cost me about 4 grand for a complete paint job, its expensive at the body shop I go to but well worth it. Just got it done about three weeks ago.
