If so, I'd like to talk to you about it, particularly about fabricating and attaching missing mounting pins.
You see how I think, Royce... I wanted to recreate the original mounting, and now you have me thinking that I should grind off the remaining pins! The quarter panel holes were filled in during the last repaint, and I don't really want to open those up again unless I'm opening all four on each side.Royce Peterson said:I have restored a few but did not ever try to replace the studs. There is an emblem adhesive available at auto paint stores that works great for reattaching the quarter emblem.
The outer portion can be rechromed, find one that is pit free as pot metal repair can be expensive.
The plastic inserts restore easily using bumper chrome paint for the letters and cat. I used a syringe to fill the recess. Let it dry thoroughly then paint the black part. The outer face can be polished using auto paint compound and soft cloth.
