I would say take your factory emblems and paint them red. Don't get the ones that have red around the H...if that's what you're talking about.

Post up a picture of the emblems you're thinking of putting on.

yea...I vote no on those. Come to think of it...I think it'd look good on your red car if you painted the OEM badges gloss black.

I would agree with the black gloss

the red badge on a red car will probably not stand out = not worth the money

I don't see the point of a red badge. On my 6th gen the emblems are just the H, so you would see my black paint under and around the H. If your car is red, why get emblems with a silver H on top of red? The look would be the same as what you got, except for maybe on the front bumper.

I agree, black would look dope.

Take the silver emblems off the car, paint them with gloss black paint, and put them back on the car.

The front emblem is just like the back one. The black backing is a separate piece...it's not like the red emblems you showed us with black instead of red, the emblem itself is just silver with no backing.

Forget those cheap eBay emblems.

If you do get emblems, get some authentic Honda oem badges.

It'll cost you some guap but its better than those eBay emblems arent even red, they are more pink than red. I dont care if it stand out or not. Ill either do oem red H or black chrome emblems.

If you want something that will show up. Just get the oem jdm s2000 badges ..

Just paint your emblem man. Cuz you know how punk kids are. Your emblem might get jacked and that 50 down the drain.

dont do it, I got those same ones a few years back and they had water in them like the day after I put them on. They always fogged up, and they ended up pink.

If your really wanting to do the red emblems buy the real ones. They're about 40 a piece, but the wont fade because they're metal not plastic

Hi and peace!

Hello!

Just introduce myself: I am a man (says my wife), I am 50 years old (hmm, that looks bad isn't it?) and I am a terrible bad programmer (I say myself).
My hobbies: computer (of course), my 17 years old son and of course my wife. I like to play billiard, I do a very little bit and very simple programming in VB and I try to make a site for my billiard-club in the near future.

big respect !
