I dont know if the badges are the same on the MK1 and MK2 but the badge was slightly bigger than the MK2 hole so he put something behind it to fill the recess and glued it on top.

Yeah that was me mate



The badges don't fit in the recess so I filled it 1st (hasn't got to be a tidy job as the badge covers it, I used the lid off a tin of hammerite ). Then I just stuck the badge to the car using this glue dad gets from work. The kinda stuff you can't just pull off.

However on the mk2 the bonnet is curved and the badge was flat so it didn't quite stick at the top and bottom, can hardly notice it though, still looks good imho.

EDIT: And oh yeah, my badge cost 99p + P+P and was brand new Keep shopping on eBay instead of using the buy it nows.

Re: badges

Can't see them fitting a mk1 as the end of the bonnet isnt flat enough i dont think?

and the badge on the mk1 is the /F/I/A/T/ one i believe?

I have just brought a mk2b active sport, it was slightly crash damaged, only cost me 1500, and its on a 53 plate with a GENUINE 15k miles.

I'll post pics up in MM thread soon, its in the garage atm having a new wishbone fitted at the moment.

After that had been done the only issue with it is that the bumper has been replaced with a standard mk2b punto one, so I'm keeping my eye out for an active sport


And as for the badge, yeah it did look a bit too big after I had done it but I was happy enough with it so I left it on.

Re: badges

Re: badges

Colour code it to make the blue parts dark green. That looks 100x better then the blue one.
