Exclamation OPEL logo badges stolen off my car - Please Help!

Hi guys

Ned new logo badges for my car.
Today someone stole the 'OPEL' logo badges, both of them, front n back.
I had parked my car in a so called safe and secure residential locality and when i got back , i was astonished to see that both the logos were stolen.They were neatly taken out.

Can someone please help me get a new pair so i can fix then in the two gaping holes in my car. If more options are available i would be interested in replacing them with "VAUXHALL" badges instead of opel. PLease help

You can only try shivajinagar gujri for the logos. Inturn a GM service centre might have totalled opel cars and you could request for the logo.

The very fact that those monograms have been stolen indicates the non-availability of the same in the market. Must be a precious commodity. I doubt if shivaji nagar gujri will be able to give you that. The thief would have already been there.

If it was a gujri fellow, he would have stolen something more expensive than just the monograms.

stevie, why dont you try the name plate engravers?

I did discuss this with one engraver while I had to make a nameplate for my home as I badly wanted the VTEC logo done. someone keeps ripping only the V off the VTEC!!! the original was replaced by plain plastic ones twice

he said i can give a design on photoshop and he can get it done in chrome finish for a particular size... something similar to what a sticker shop does.

and,... this time i know what to use to stick the logo on the body... a super strong industrial glue. i will however have to try the glue on a hidden side of the body first.

but, did not find time to do this yet.

Stevie! If You're going to Gujri, make sure you park your car somewhere far. By the time you get back happily after getting your logos, You'll find your windscreen missing.
Or better catch a rickshaw.
