Speaking of vee-hickles, when I was having some (most) of the panels on my Micra repainted (under lifetime warranty by MotorOne, yay!), I had them remove the badges from the bonnet (hood) and rear hatch; the rears were just stuck on, but removing the front-and-centre NISSAN logo from the bonnet revealed two holes in the bonnet itself: horizontally aligned, about 4 inches apart. I'm now wondering how to cover them up.
  • I was thinking of a ThunderCats logo, but a chrome emblem thereof has proved impossible to find.
  • We have a Transformers logo (Autobots ) chrome emblem that we originally had stuck onto ShyShy Jr's petrol filler door, but it's so heavy that it started to just slide off; admittedly, we first covered the door with red Contact to project the paint and also to make it stand out (see attached) and this may have negatively affected the adhesion. The more important issue with this option is that the bonnet is heavily curved at the nose, and the back of the emblem is flat, so only the vertical middle of the adhesive backing would be in contact with the bonnet. We'd probably need to cut into the backing to make a concave curve, to try to match the bonnet. Ugh.
  • …?

Get a couple cheap flexible radio antennas, and mount one in each hole to make your car look like a bug.

We've decided to go with either a door handle (like this) or a pair of door knobs (like this). The holes are 100mm apart (centre to centre) and standard handles are 96mm apart, so we'll see if the handle even fits; if not, then we'll go with the knobs.

That seems far too practical and useful.
