Preparation and installment of emblems.

I purchased a set of used emblems to badge the rear of my naked Legend and have a few questions on preparation and installment.

1. Being that they are used, the clearcoat is worn off a bit and I would like to add a nice layer of it on them. Any products recommended?

2. What is used to paste the emblems?

3. And the most important part, is there a diagram showing the exact OEM positions for the emblems on 1994 and 1995 Coupes? Meaning, how far apart are the L E G E N D letters, their height above the keyhole, and the position of the upper left Acura emblem.

I have OCD and want this done right. If any of you have time and a ruler, I would appreciate some numbers or a nice little diagram showing me this. :D

I swear I did many searches and nothing answered the above questions.

I dont know if anymore answered your q about clear coating them again but from my experience ive painted various things and clear coated em using a clear coat u can buy from any major parts store or home depot, lowes etc... i used duplicolor clear coat and i believe krylon makes a clear coat as well. it came with instructions but its pretty cut n dry. i cleaned up my stuff with dish soap to make sure no wax or anything is on it. make sure they're super dry as well. then u apply light even coats till u get the desired effect. id usually let my stuff sit at least 24hrs before using it to make sure the clear coat adheared right. then just to make it even nicer and pop even more id wax the stuff the next day and make em really nice.

hope that helps. if u need any more info lemme know :)

P.S. ~ not to jack this thread but i read someone here bought the gold badging? i was wanting to do that this summer but i didnt know a good cheap place to get them at. also if anyone knows where u can score the jdm gold from grill with the honda H and the rear gold Hcause i think that would be nice.
