    I just received fender emblems to be mounted onto a CUCV pick up truck ;
    Does any one know how to fix them ? The ones I received are original Chevy parts , but are sold without nuts or other locking stuff

    Thanks for your advice

    Yeh its those little cutter nuts(what i call em anyway), they hold on all sorts of trim around the truck. Only prob is you have to pull the fender to put em on :crazy: Screw that, when I replace mine im gonna glue em on;)

    Speed nuts are the proper name for them, you can get them at any Napa store..

    Speed nuts...

    They call them "pal" nuts too--but they suck!--90% of the time they snap the studs off the emblems!.(and they are a bitch to get at and tighten--unless you have the fender off the truck!)--.

    Most body shops here either use double faced 3M foam tape to stick them on,or use "Barrel Clips" that press into the hole from the outside--they have a flange to keep them from falling thru,and little "barbs" on the inside to grip the pins on the emblem..then all you have to do is press the emblem's pins into the holes with the barrel clips to install it--no ripping your hands up trying to reach those pal or speed nuts,or possibly breaking the studs off.. :doah: :crazy:
