75701-S6M-Z01 for the rear emblem. The rear emblem looks smaller than the original H emblem. Does anyone know if I received the correct emblems? I got these from BestJDMParts.Com. Any DIY here for the FG2 emblems? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

step two:
-once taking care to remove stock emblem, be sure to clean the crevices of the area because it will not be seen or accessible ever again once badge has been installed. you may have a piece or two of the 2 prongs that were once holding the stock badge in place.

When I break the OEM Emblem, will the 2 white prongs stay in the grill area? If yes, how do I remove them without taking off the grill?

this way instead of having to place the emblem in such a big area, you limit yourself to a LOT smaller space. then once satisfied with where you placed the emblem, put a peice of tape over the front of the emblem to make it stay in place to test fit. then measure along the top of the trunk brake light like in the picture below. follow the long blue tape line.



this distance should approximately be 21 3/8" (at least for the emblem i got from robear) on either side or as close as you can get it to. once again, this distance is from THE SIDE OF THE EMBLEM TO THE END OF THE TRUNK LID MEASURED ALONG THE TOP OF THE TRUNK LID BRAKE LIGHT.

once satisfied tape along the sides of the new emblem so you retain the place for when you remove the cover for the adhesive backing.

hope this helps those with ocd like me. lol.
This helped a lot coz i have the same ocd problem hehe. What's the best way to install the front emblem centered?

yes mine ended up staying there. did not remove them to the best of my knowledge & it will never been seen or noticed so its no biggie to me. however, not noted in the DIY; but when i upgraded to the Mugen Si grille & replaced the OEM silver emblem w/ the JDM badge, i did not have a breakage issue w/ it this time.

being gentle & prying in the right place pays off.

I bought a pair of badges on ebay that were JDM, but now that I'm looking at these I'm not sure it's the same one. Will the badges for the civic CRX work for the new Si?

I would be careful, there is an EBay vendor selling fake red "H"
eBay Motors: Honda RED H Emblem SET-Accord Civic Si Integra CRX JDM (item 320310793428 end time Oct-21-08 20:14:24 PDT)

FAKE!!!

i used 3M double-stick tape; a piece long enuf to cover the holes + an additional bit & its been perfectly fine since day one. its more of a mental thing for me to know they are covered more than anything else.

im weird like that.

just did my rear and just eye balled it to center.. it's pretty close i think.. i even used some string to tie onto the trunk latch and such to see if it was pretty close to center.. it might be a millimeter or so off, maybe.. but this DIY is great help!
