lion - Post subject: ELECTRIC emblemPosted: Tue May 28, 2013 6:39 am

I know some people have bought this 'ELECTRIC' emblem from eBay. If you were one of them, I wanted to hear if you are still happy with the quality, and if you had any trouble applying it.

I'm thinking about removing the zero emissions logo on the hatch (or move it to the left under the LEAF badge), and put the ELECTRIC emblem there instead.

Also, does anyone know what the big differences are between these 2 'auctions'? Same guy, and I'm sure it's something simple, but I can't figure it out, but 1 is $16, while the other is $25, same pics.

Thanks!

lion, the difference is, the less expensive option is letters you apply individually and the more expensive option is an assembled word/emblem, ready for placement. You can also purchase at pluginamerica.com: https://org.salsalabs.com/o/2711/t/1129 ... nt_KEY=553

Thanks, after being directed to this thread and reading all 23 pages, I have come to that same conclusion. Thanks for confirming, I have gone ahead and ordered the 1-piece unit. Wish the font matched the LEAF font (or maybe at least not italic), but it should be better than what it shows now.

No, the font doesn't match, but nobody has found one that does. It's probably a Nissan proprietary font. These are a very good-looking match. I love mine. I removed the zero-emission emblem on the right of the hatch and placed ELECTRIC there instead. Enjoy!

Received my letters today. Disappointed they aren't aligned properly, considering I paid a premium for that, but hopefully I can adjust it.

What adhesive remover do you guys recommend? 3M seems to have many positive reviews, but many complain about paint damage.

I'm thinking about getting Griot's Garage 15901 Adhesive Remover, but not many reviews.

Also noticed that there were many scratches behind my badge, very strange since all I did was peel back the badge once I was able to grab it (glue was warm from sitting in the sun).

Thanks! I got mine from there, since it was the same price with free shipping. That is their web shop link, even though their web site is at (www.pluginamerica.org).
