Roundel Vandalism

I had my car parked at the airport for the past few days and this morning I noticed my passenger side turning light roundel looked different. Looks like some 8astard peeled off my decal. I toured around the car and that seams to be the only vandalism.

Is this a common problem with anyone else?

Now....where do I order a replacement?

That is so maddening. Respect for the property of others is becoming more and more rare. Why earn something when one feels they are entitled to have it. It is not theft, it is property reassignment. End of rant. Sorry for your loss.

51147057794 is the part number for the emblem you'll need for the fender emblem, I have it available HERE.

Re: Roundel Vandalism

I know the feeling... I had my rear emblem stolen about a year ago and on top of that I they used a flathead to pry it out and scrached up the paint. If only I had seen them doing it, thats messed up.

Good thing is that they aren't too expensive to replace, but that is not the point.

It's very possible that roundel has just worn off due to to weathering/age . This happened to me recently as well. My Indy shop literally has a bucket of old customer roundels that look just like yours.
