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.

Thank you both for giving me the exact measurements on the emblem positions! 91LSMAN, man, you went ALL OUT :D with the measuring tape and I really appreciate the photos you took; it is just what I needed.

Anyone care to answer questions 1 and 2? :p

I absolutely love your coupe. It's one of my favorites.
We should meet up sometime after mine is out of the body shop (vandalism).

Again, I'm really sorry to hear about what happened to your car. I hope everything is working out for you. You have one of the best looking Legends on the boards; I am envious of you.

Thanks! When I saw the car on eBay, I knew it had to be mine. It is a dream come true to own a Legend. You cannot believe how much I enjoy driving this car.

Definitely, we should meet up someday and plan something. I would love to do that and I look forward to it.

Sergio I love your coupe esp. the rims they have a skyline look to them with the six spokes. What color are they? They look grey.

Personally I like the car debadged but if your gonna do it do it right. I'm just curious how much did you pay for the used set? and how much are the badges new?
Thanks for the comments. I still need to get the front bumper fixed and all lights hooked up; I will do so after the rains. The rims are sort of light-grey.

I actually had purchased the used gold emblems off eBay for $115.00 shipped but then later sold them. I don't know what I was thinking when I purchased a used set of gold emblems. I actually made a small profit selling them on eBay. :) I later purchased a brand-new set of silver emblems from Tim over at for $131.90 shipped. Tim is awesome, by the way.
