i have no idea if these even exist anymore, but mine just popped off the other day while I was detailing the car. Like 90% of the other Starions, the sides yellowed out and look horrible. Was wondering if any of you guys knew where I could get a new one. Also, the same thing happened to the triple diamond emblem on the back a few months ago, so same thing for that too.

pcristqester and I have both scoured the internet, he even looked in Japan with no luck. I finally bought an intact original one and was about to restore it when he told me he belived the boarders were originally gold. I assumed it was chromed. I stopped my plans, but found some gold "car wrap" that I hope will replicate an original look. Now I need to figure out what shade of red to use.

If anyone has a good close-up picture of a pristine original one, Please post it!

I got a brochure off ebay and the emblem on it was silver bordered.

I wonder if the adhesive that Mitsu used on these was just bad and they fell off, or whether people removed them.  I've owned a few Starions over the years and have never had one with an emblem, and I know few people locally with these cars and I think I've only ever seen one or two cars with one.

I kinda like my car with the clean header panel look, but if I ever came across a decent emblem in quality shape I'd consider putting it on the car.

Gold flake could possibly be laid over a chrome one from another vehicle. The red diamonds are translucent as well
