If you mean the piece over the rear plate: eBay! (http://shop.ebay.com/items/__cadillac-brougham-chrome?Model%2520Year=1992&_dmpt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&_fln=1&_ssov=1&_trksid=p3286.c0.m282)

See what it looks like without it. Just have the full lock emblem with no trim and no caddy script. It would look nice in black too

You gotta have all the jewelry. Shaving emblems and chrome trim looks good when you're doing a radical custom on a vintage car, but it just looks bad on these cars in my book. The fun of these things is how overdecorated they came from the factory.

You got have some thing to enhance the shield. The lock sticks out too far and doesn't mesh with the rest of the car. Thats why, when they dropped the V from the hood ornaments, the car's still had them on the trunk deck.

But if I wanted to change the look of the rear end (and I have) I would drop the fruity wreath and put the, more powerful and prestigious (in my opinion), V under the lock.

Back in the day, the regular Devilles got the crest and V, while the more expensive Fleetwoods got the wreath and crest.

Although I do think the V looks good as well, but if you get rid of the wreath on the trunk, I personally think you need to eliminate the wreath from the other 436 Cadillac crests on the car.

I've got a pleasant mix between wreaths and Vs. I've got the stock wreath crest hood ornament, Vs under the door locks (from the C pillar of a Sedan De Ville), the stock wreaths under the C pillar shields and the a V crest on the trunk. I also replaced the square lenses, on the interior door lamps, with ones from a Sedan De Ville that have the crest in place of the blank metal square. And as if I need any more Cadillac logos, I mounted a replica 40's hood ornament to the grill header; it doesn't have a V or wreath so it balances everything out.

I saw your Vs under the locks and thought they were groovy, they fit the boxyness of the car better then the crest, IMO. My trunk lock/emblem/crest was chipped and missing before I got it so I was gonna bondo the hole and I have a stick-on cadillac emblem(dont know how I got it) thats pretty flat to put on. I didnt know that piece was so much on ebay, gotta take mine off the parts car.
