They're somewhat in between time wise in regards to white metal and plastic but other cars in the Nissan stable were all plastic badge at that time and mine is certainly all plastic. 

You shouldn't have any trouble getting a replacement. I can help if you wish. 

I think RS Start had them when I was there. 

Edit : Yep

Here you go, just grab one out of the cabinet...

I got my rear 110GTR badge from RS START.

Thanks man, I knew you'd know. Bit sad they're not metal but hey-ho.

75 quid though... Really ? Theirs are metal though, right ? Guess that's why mine was bodged together.

Think I'm playing with the big boys now.

/ I've always liked a shaved bootlid.

Yeah

Nah

Looks like I'm way too tight to own a nice car.

Maybe I'll look into it when I paint it.

/still surprised it's not metal to be honest.

Hako owner cries poor.

When I bought mine, you didn't have to be rich.

Now you'd definitely be poor once you'd bought one.

But yes, if Morris were still making badges in metal then, what were Nissan thinking ?

Lighter is better. Ask Colin Chapman.

You ask him, I'm looking at the ridiculous price of these things now in Japan.

Maybe I should sell it back to them. no one's going to pay that money for them now, surely ?

Valuations are getting toward the 6 figure mark here for 110s and I can only imagine 10s are higher. (even if they're sedans...)

Just looking on carsensor.  2000 GT sedans similar spec to mine but mostly with the correct single carb and I assume  as rust free as mine, are around the 3.5 to 4.8 million Yen mark.

There's a stock GT-X coupe for 14 million.

Kenmeri, you say ?

Yeah, so that Hardtop Kenmeri ($88,000NZD) is only slightly more than a Hako sedan.

How good is that NOS badge instead of a new one though? Sweet deals.  Glad I wasted more money hunting down one of those instead. 

Drill that biiiiiiiiiitch.

Don't be upset. 

Most things in life are a waste of money. 

I also said I was glad.  Why would it sadden you for me to be glad?  Geeez. 

Drill your bootlid please.

Do the badges not have the spiked washers internally to hold them on?
