Badge Fixing

Postby Andrew Morris » Thu Aug 16, 2012 10:45 pm

This may appear trivial but im lost on this one?
Finally got my HC back from the Paint Shop,and bits going back together slowly.Im wanting to fit the boot badges back on, and the rear panel letters but if i use the old metal insets im certain it will chip the new paint around the holes.

Im loathed to stick them on,can you get inserts,bit like raw plugs?

Any one?

I usually just stick mine on with double sided tape, you can get very powerful ones these days, builders merchants are better than car accessory shops for it!!
but if you want the inserts try rover p5/6 specialists as they use someting very similar in size!

I'm sure Bresco do a few different sizes of the plastic inserts that are used to grip the lugs, have a search on their site.
