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 used a plastic epoxy on one of my emblems about a month or more ago, and have since then experienced snow, rain, and extreme low temps, and it is still solid, with just a little bit of flexibility so it doesn't break off.
There is more info on this too. Some guys have used 3M automotive tape too.

I can't remember the brand of epoxy right this second, but it looked like 2 syringes side by side.

This method may keep the letters a fraction closer to the body then the OEM.
Actually the epoxy I used is extremely forgiving. You have 8 minutes or more to adjust it, and it sets in about 15 min., and after mixing it polymerizes into a non-hazardous solid, so it shouldn't damage your paint. In fact it looks and acts more like hot glue would.
