    Hi All,

    The previous owner has debadged my car and it has no "Accord" badge.

    Has anyone got one in good condition or can I buy one off the web anywhere?

    Also, is there a "2.2" or "ES GT" badge on these at all for the right side?

    Cheers

    Neil

    I have my Accord badge somewhere.

    If you are happy paying the postage you can have it.

    I am keeping the original Type-S badge though as they seem to be impossible to get outside of a dealers

    Thanks Blue Toffee,

    To be honest, I'm undecided whether to add one.

    I guess it just looks a very simple and elegant rear end compared to that of the Civic, and to me it just looks a little empty (if that makes sense) and maybe the badge would just add that bit of detail?

    Racy - Thanks for the link but if I were to add a badge it would need to be standard, I guess there wasn't one on the right hand side as standard on the accord.

    Your welcome Neil, I would however question why the badge was not there in the first place, check for any signs of damage repair.

    I thought the same and checked the boot and surrounding area, no hint of damage.

    I guess some people just like the debadged look. Coincidentally, when I bought the Civic the previous owner had done the same and I replaced it with an original one for about £15 on ebay.

    Good news then.

    I am one of those 'debadged' lovers...however not sure if I have the balls to try and take mine off.

    Yes, I can imagine it going quite wrong if it was done in a rush- boot respray time!

    20130423_191641. To de badge I would of thought a hair dryer, floss and WD40 would get it off.

    As the 8th gens are rare I like to let people know what it is their looking at so I've left mine on. I did nearly go for the chrome EX GT letters as they looked like an OEM finish but decided on a fake mugen badge which as you've a GT may be a better option.
