Anyone have any luck with sticking your exterior emblems on rather than drilling holes? I realize I would have to cut off the mount studs on the back of the emblem. Since Im running a clone and have new rear quarters I need to drill holes to fit the front fender and rear 1/4 emblems.

I am deathly afraid of screwing it up!!!!!!!! My luck I would either chase a drill bit down the side of the car or have a hole so far off it can't be covered or the paint would chip out to the size of a quarter and look terrible.

Any advice will help, either way, if Im gonna drill em i need all the confidence I can get for it.

Thanks

I even did this to my 6.5 emblems. Just cuts the studs and filled the backs up with JB weld with just enough room for one strip of tape. Was over 10 years ago. No problems.

Glad to hear someone has done it. Yep, leaning towards the 3M for sure, if they don't happen to stick or fall off then I will re-visit the drilling part.

Eric--3" hole in the hood, bet you measured more that once to make sure you in the right spot!! Scarey is an understatement!!

Thanks guys
