There will be holes behind the A and the LEGEND emblems, no the ACURA one.

To remove them, some use dental floss but that didn't work for me. Make sure the glue behind is a little warm to make it easier. The best is to use a thin rigid metal shim to just pry them off. My bro works at a body shop and that's what he did to remove mine...

The best way to remove emblems is with a heat gun and a piece of fishing line. You can yse dental floss, but it tends to break, and doesn't work nearly as well. Just keep the heat gun about 6 inches in fron of the emblem, and move it back and forth to warm the adhesive, then just slide the fishing line behind the emblem, and move it from one side to the other in a sawing like motion. then simply use some adhesive remover, such as goof off, to remove the remaining adhesive. If there is a "ghost" left behind, using a clay bar or a mild rubing compound will remove it for you no problem. Hope this helps, best of luck.

Here is what I've done when swapping emblems or "shaving"

1-Heat up with blow dryer.

2-Slide fishing line behind the emblem.

3-Pull emblem off.

4-Remove adhesive with adhesive remover or something similiar

5-Then I use Poorboys Professional Polish with my Porter Cable 7424 to remove any excess adhesive that I can't rub off.

6-Poorboys SSR1 to Polish out any scratches caused by everything else.

7-Either wax the area or install new emblem.

I was wondering if there was a certain way to take the emblems off and if there will be holes from the emblems left on the trunk. Let me Know-Thanks
Since you have a 93, I'm assuming you have the "ACURA" on the top left of the trunk, "LEGEND" on the top right and the "A" in the middle above the key hole. Only the "A" will leave holes.

I have both in gold but it will need to be repainted because the gold has for the most part chipped off. Let me know if you are still interested.

Alright, so it's been said how to take the emblems off... but any tips on how to complete the "shaving" process... what to use to fill the holes, etc., because I know the holes cannot be accessed through the bottom of the trunk....

Go to a body shop, it's not like you are going to be able just stick a cork in it.

The proper thing to do would be to have a body shop weld the holes, then bondo, sand, prime, paint.
