    Question Emblem or Logo replacement...???

    Hey all, this is my first post here and was wondering if anyone can help me. I've got a 96 Buick Regal GS that is in excellent condition and I'm trying to keep it that way. A while back I lost the chrome plated "Regal" logo or emblem on the driver's side door. Now I only have the dark glue outline which looks pretty bad. I'm trying to find a replacement emblem but having NO luck at all. Anyone know where I might purchase one? I've even tried going to junk yards but the only ones I've found there have been in horrible condition. I'd like to get one (or a set) that is new with no scratches or rust. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanx in advance.

    I would check with some local body shops. I would think the parts department at a dealership would be able to get you these as well. Other than that, I'd just say do a search on the tructy 'ol internet.

    Okay, as silly as it sounds, I hadn't even thought about going to the dealership to find one. Guess because last year was the last time they made the GS I just assumed they wouldn't have them. Sometimes my lack of brain power amazes even me. LOL Thanks for the replies. Guess that's where I'll be going Monday morning

    I've bought emblems at dealerships before, they usually cost from 10-25 dollars. Dealerships should have them for cars about 20 years back or so - that's the oldest I've replaced ("Pontiac" emblem on a 1986 Pontiac 6000).

    I hope it could help you:
    "Regal" Nameplate, Gold with Olympic pkg. Part Number: 10286352
    "Regal" Nameplate, Chrome w/o Olympic pkg. Part Number: 10247466

    As we do on the dealer that I work, If you want some part that We dont have in stock, all that we ask to the customer is a partial "pre-pay" (sorry i really dont know how to say it on english) to assure that the client ll comeback for their parts.
    I hope that you find your emblem soon.

    Don't need the internet. Do it the car guy way. Do the junkyard crawl or the swap meet walk.

    Well, after a swift kick to the brain housing group (thanx BRMike & lynch mob) I went to the Buick dealer and...guess what? I bought a replacement emblem for $13. I really appreciate all the replies to my silly question but they did help. I am now quite happy to have my baby complete again. Thanx
