when you say emblem, do you mean the entire box that the Cougar lives in? If so, then what I did was tap the old protrusions that were swaged on (what was left of them since I had to grind the mushrooms off to dismantle) with 6-32 thread. then I took 6-32 flat head screws, and screwed the box to the rest of the door. I cut the excess screw length off so that the screws were only as long as needed to be flush so the aluminum black cougar background would assemble without issues. The cat itself screws on so the aluminum piece is already sandwiched. Hope this helps.

P.s. I used the same procedure to re-attach the metal background pieces to the extreme ends of the 1969 grilles in the corners where the fender extensions are adjacent. Just used lock washers and flat head screws. Adhesives probably work fine but I wanted hardware re-assurance.

Well it was not as hard as i thought it would be. But I decided to drill and tap the studs with a #4-40 thread screw and it worked out great. I will have pics of the front end up soon. Thanks for the advise all.
