What sort of judging are planning for your car? I believe that for NCRS type judging I would take the emblems off so that the deduction would just be for the holes in the hood which would not be typical of factory production. I would take only a couple of points since the holes are a relatively small flaw in the fiberglass and paint. It would be good to hear some other views.
Regards,
Alan

The deduction would be only for the non-original holes in the hood to mount the emblems - wouldn't matter if the emblems were installed or not (same logic as a dealer-installed luggage rack - deduction is only for the mounting holes). I'd probably take two points.
