Bummer, I did see new bolts advertised alongside but then I didn't realise the pins didn't have threads.

So hold the current badge, loosen the bolts off, am I right in thinking they won't drop out of their position?!

Then put new badge in and tighten back up?!

Should I buy new bolts?

Sounds like once I've got the new badge on, it's best left where it is? Started thinking I could take it off to detail the bonnet.

How have I never seen this thread!?

Cracking car there Marty, loving the tale as it progresses Thumb

Wonderful cars the Cayman's and Boxsters. Every bit a superb car in their own right.

If I had a Cayman I'd have to detail the engine bay and get a clear perspex engine cover to make it look like this:

Thanks Ragpicker, I was very lucky to have come on here and got hooked up with Tom 911v.

She certainly is a step up from my heavy front engined Golf.

I have seen those transparent covers, was even one for sale on here. Does look cool, did consider it. Having now seen my engine, looks quite a bit different to his shall we say. How much work is there involved?!

Was a strange sensation buying a car not seeing the engine, I must say.

Removed the old tired badge, detailed the bonnet (clayed/polished/sealed), then whacked on the new badge! What a difference!
