Datsun 1200s came with several badges (emblems). The original 1200 badges were metal, but the new ones -- genuine Nissan items -- are a high-quality plastic that looks very good. Aftermarket reproduction badges vary in quality from poor to very good.



Also see: Badge Part Numbers

Genuine Nissan badges are metal or plastic depending on the year made.

Badge Installation

Most Datsun badges are fastened via Hole-barrel nuts.

1. Two or three simple holes are drilled in the sheet metal
2. Round inserts are pushed into the sheet metal
3. The badge is pushed into the inserts


The inserts may be stuck to the old badge, you can see them on this GL badge:

The nuts are not sold separately, but can be found on wrecker cars or old broken badges.

Malaysia repro vs Nissan item: This reproduction badge has has poor chroming and what appears to be hand-painted coloring that doesn't exactly stay within the lines. However, other reproduction badges may be high quality.
