Default Emblem replacement

feb 14th a storm drain cover (the roth iron) gets robbed from my building..how he or they managed it without making a sound still gets me?

feb 15th a plastic chair gets robbed from the securtiy cabin

feb 16th icing on the cake he/they take the emblem right off my sonata gold! so if you see a guy walking around with what looks like a hockey stick tucked inside his jacket that would be me!

point being the car does look good without it (no no still going to kill him if i find him or her lol) wanted to know if there are any ready made parts that can slide or fit into where the earlier emblem was, the lower half which is sliver in colour, was thinking of painting it but that does not look good?

can't help you on this bro, but just wanted to say "chair from security cabin" maybe you should hire someone who can do a better job of atleast keeping his chair inplace. well it's feb 17th now can't wait to see what this genius takes today(just kidding hope you find him asap probably it's just a kid messing around.

You could ask the hyundai dealership. They usually have to fit new emblems onto accident cars.

I think aditya is right on this as asking the dealers is a better way to get that emblem fixed and maybe some aftermarket stores might help as well, however not sure about this one.

As others have suggested, you can get it fixed from dealer. Usually, dealers will have these kind of spare parts with them.

if you want the same old emblem, go to the chor bazaar and u will find ur same old emblem or atleast something similar too ur's at a throw away price.

But i think ur sonata will be looking better without the emblem.

Try polishing that part with a good wax based polish. take it to a painter & he will get that done for you in no time.
