What do you guys replace the front arrowhead with?

I am debating on a Holden conversion, in badgeing only, and am wondering what most do with the bare space after removing the front arrowhead and filling the holes. Is there a Holden badge that fills the space?
I know some leave the area bare, but I would prefer to have some sort of front badge.

I love the trunk badge and know I can get inserts for my wheels. The steering wheel badge would also need to be replaced. I believe that covers it all.

I have no problem with Pontiac whatsoever. But with the new Chevy coming out, I would like to try and differentiate my car from being compared to it.

If you didn't change your hood, the Holden or HSV front badge generally gets placed on that "tab" of the hood's edge, just above where the Pontiac badge is now.

Thanks for the offer BIP!
I love the Holden badge- lion.
I am in between thoughts. I like having the last car Pontiac made.
However with the new Chevy coming out, this platform will now be like a McDonald's Big Mac. So, it would be nice to somehow pull away from the dumbing down of a marquee...known as Chevrolet.

Listen, sorry to the bros from the outback but the lion is GOOFY, might as well put one of those crown air fresheners on the dash while your at it, lol

No one knows the lion here and its just not cool enough to carry itself on its own.



Now go ahead and call me an a-hole i can take it, lol

Goofy was about 98% of what Pontiac ever offered too. Aztec was a notable mark in history.

But...true, Americans do recognize the brand and its dart.

True, and true. Also, I hate to in anyway associate myself with the kiddies that remove the Acura badges from their Integras in favor of a Honda badge.

Why? An Acura IS basically a Honda rebadged by the US to "luxury up" the image. Up until 2003, the CL was one of the only true Acuras they've ever made that they didn't offer in the Japanese market as a Honda. Not sure about any of the latest stuff. If you think about it, GM and Honda and so many other car manufacturers have rebadged on a corporate level. Now Pep Boys badges and/or putting Lincoln badges on a GM car or something Pe-tarded like that...no way.

just to give you an idea, this was a little project I was working on. Never got around to finishing it though. Still had to fill in/paint the holes, but the Holden badge can be heated and curved to fit the bumper. I did get bashed for it at the time, lol, but hey, someone's gotta try these crazy things!

Nothing. Filled holes and had the bumper painted PBM(panther black metallic). Should have done it much sooner.
