Hey guys. Just want to know where or what "L" from what model or year that I can use for my front grill. I just picked up a TRD front grille for my 03 IS. Looks kind of plain so I decided to mount a "L" emblem on. The only thing is I need to find one that has a certain prong on the back so that I can maybe use some screws to hold it in on the back side of it. Do anyone know what "L" emblem that has those certain prongs in the back?

the oem front emblem has prongs but they're not long enough to screw on. most people just use double sided tape, or dremel the plastic base flat and tape that on

The OEM front emblem looks kind of big on the TRD mesh grill IMO. A lot of people use the “L” emblem off of the engine cover for their mesh grills. Just another option I thought I’d throw out there.

Agree with Chad. I made a custom grille and just used epoxy to fasten the BP "L" on the grille

I was thinking about using double sided tape but wouldn't it come off easily since there isn't a lot of contact surface between the emblem and the mesh?

on my last car i did that on though, over time the adhesive gets dirt and bebris in it, and loosens up off the grill. I've seen some use zipties...haha, but thats a little too much ghetto...:cool:
