Datsun/Nissan emblems and badging


Recommended Posts

I already have black paint missing off my hood emblem, and it's only a little over a year on the hood and hardly driven. Suffice it to say that I'm disappointed. WTF kind of crap are they selling out there. I didn't get this at a dealer, but it was in a Nissan parts box so I guess it makes no difference. Anyone else have this happening?

I wouldn't be shocked if it were stock. If it were NOS, that is at least 30 years old, and it was never great quality to start with. I used a Rustoleum Plastic paint, sprayed the whole thing, then went back over it with thinner on a q-tip to remove the paint from the Z and the rim. Worked well.

I'll second the use of model paint. It works and lasts very well.

For what it's worth, you have to remember that these were not expensive cars. Quality of things like emblems is one of the areas where compromises were made.
