  • Body / Glass: Mounting Script - clips?

    Is there any solution to fastening the Studebaker script on the front fenders of my '57 Golden Hawk.
    S.I. was no help. The original fasteners were a rectangle rubber and metal piece, that secured the script to the fender.
    The same applies to the Golden Hawk script.
    I'm open for any suggestions.

    These People are Wholesale Manufacturers or suppliers of every kind of Automotive Body fastener, they have Retail Distributors that will sell their product.

    This is just one of many distributors:

    This may be what you want:

    The thread cutting NUT, 1/8" Stud - 5/16 Hex Nut $7.07 per 100 pcs. If that is close to your "Pin" Diameter they will work and you can fill the Nut and washer with Dum-dum clay sealer or Silicone. Item #A2895 on Clips and Fasteners Website.

    Or the A16134 - 3mm Stud, 8 mm Nut, 13.5mm Washer WITH Sealer $12.51 for (25) should also work.

      I cant understand why Studebaker did that & used those rectangular shaped holes & clips. I've never seen a drill that does them. Same thing as on my 60 Lark. Just weird.

        If the pins are still in place, Rich's link is the way to go. That said, some of the lettering on my Lark got the pins knocked off. I took some black rtv, dabbed it on the back of the script, and pressed the script piece right over where it should have gone. Bingo! A year later, it's still holding strong. Of course, I've got a '63 Lark in driver condition, so a fix like that is good for me. A golden hawk of any caliber might warrant a slightly more professional fix. You can get pins re-soldered if I recall correctly
