I have my Grandmas 1972 Datsun 510 so when I got the Xterra one of my thoughts was to re-badge it. The center caps and rear badge are just a click away but the front took me about 3 months of looking around to see how I can do it.

I finally found the right NOS Datsun badge to cover the Nissan. I had to fill in the 2 N's as the Nissan is wider than the Datsun. Next was to paint the Datsun as it was grey with chrome lettering. Then the stock badge has about 15 coats of paint as for some reason one side kept getting a rough texture. So paint, sand, paint, sand, paint and sand again. Agggghh!

Will see how long it lasts but is super easy to just get a NOS badge off Ebay.

Cheers!

My very first car was a 1979 280zx Datsun by Nissan.. Very cool car, just didn't know it at the time in high school when everyone else was getting new cars, lol.

My first car was a 78 B210 that I bought in 1985 on a Thursday and totaled it on forest road next Saturday LOL
My Mom had a 73 B210 and landed it roof first in a creek in winter.
Insurance totaled it, but she insisted it be repaired. Mustard yellow!
