Re: GTA Nose Emblem!!

Actually, it is with a 3M adhesive. There are a number of places that they can be purchased from.

Hmmm, maybe then they are different on the older ones. I thought they all were held on by 3M tape.

Re: GTA Nose Emblem!!

That's the beauty of a GTA-specific site. I got a GTA reproduction emblem set on eBay and they're nearly perfect!

Re: GTA Nose Emblem!!

bumper removal would probably be better. What about your bra? How you gonna do it with the emblem?

I believe they were only taped from 91-92, 87-90 had studs in the back

Re: GTA Nose Emblem!!

If you are using a bra, keep the car clean all the time, and take it off often, removing small rocks, and dust and such, which will ruin your paint by scratching it.
Clean out the inside of the bra as well.
I only use a bra when traveling on the highway, and take it right off.
You will be surprised how fast they fill with crap.
Sorry I don't have a nose piece.
