Default ZR1 Hood Emblem

Not sure what to do. But the previous owner installed a single hood emblem on the left side of my 91 Turquoise Metallic ZR1. I can't seem to find one in this color and they made a lot of them in 91. Has anyone taken a ZR1 emblem and had it refinished to match another color? I have thought about taking it off but don't want to risk screwing up the paint.

The paint shop I used to repaint my car also repainted the original ZR-1 emblem on the rear. Originally it was dark red metallic.

I keep checking Ebay hoping to find one in my color but as of yet just about every color but. So I thought I would buy one that was not too much money and have it painted to 42U.

It's just plastic thats painted.
so you could have one refinished to match.
I have a few of these but they are for a black 90

That's why I 'm keeping my eye out for a cheap one on ebay. Not going to spend $50-70 for one I'm going to have repainted anyway. If I get a white one I can tape over the black ZR1 and the Chevron scuff and paint the correct color. Unless I get lucky and one Turquoise Metallic shows up. I wish someone would start making them but it's a pretty small market.

Yes, keep eyeballing ebay.....I'm sure no one will notice if you do in fact paint it......I like how the Z looks with the lettering on the fenders..

I doubt the PO installed a 'single' but rather than 'pierce' the hood and install correctly the PO just used a double sided tape install and the 'other' has just fallen off. Is the other side of the hood pierced? I'd think removal wouldn't be an issue.

Post a 'WTB' - why waste the time doing daily searches? Seems silly!
