Repairing the Posts on Side Cover Emblems

Repairing the Posts on Side Cover Emblems
by Ken Talbot

If you do break off one of the posts, all is still not lost. The pair of emblems I got from the boneyard for SWMBO's 'H had a broken post.

Emblem with broken post on left side


I ground the last bit of the post off so there was a flat spot. Then I
filed down the head of a small machine screw like the one on the right in this photo

Before and after screws


To finish, I 'glued' the machine screw on with a dab of "Lab Metal" (I imagine epoxy would also work.)

When these go back on the side covers, I'll use a regular nut and a washer rather than the metal clips. (Don't over tighten them or you risk cracking the side cover. A drop of Permatex also sounds like a good idea.)
