I love the look of the JDM Altezza grill for our car, BUT I hate the Altezza emblem so my question is does anyone have the Altezza grill but fabricated a Lexus "L" emblem on it? I know anythings possible, but I wanted to know if anyone has personally done it cause I don't want to be the guinea pig.

:wink:

Did you buy it like that or did you fabricate it yourself. If you fabricated how did you stick the L on there, weld, double side tape?

It's not hard to do. Just take a 2002 emblem (mine's BP) and do a little modification with tinsnips or wirecutters and a file. Drill a hole in each of the tabs on the back of the emblem, and use a zip tie or two to attach it. I used 3M attachment tape on mine though.

Got the idea from peterc, but he didnt use tape.

got it on mine. you need a 02 or later stock grill as the doner for the emblem. like others said you need to trim down the back to get it to fit to the contours of the new grill. I used zip ties to hold mine on. check my www link for some pics of the install process in my yahoo album.
