Anyone use decals in place of the charger script emblems on the sail panels?
Just wondering.

Maybe because drilling the mounting holes is a great way to cause water leaks? 


You could always get repro badges, grind off the mounting posts, and then use modern trim adhesive to attach them onto the panel.

That sounds like a good idea.  I've never heard of doing that, but that is one way I guess.

I dont think that would work. The sail panel emblems dont have the same curve as the sail panel does, and the studs when fastened down form the emblem to match the sail panel. Modern trim adhesive would not accomplish thish unless you had some kind of custom clamp fabricated.

Just drill the holes and put some urethane over the stud then put on the speed nut. No leaks

I dunno. 

Some of the factory emblems fit their panels a lot better than others.

And some of the repro badges I've seen being made for old Mopars are even made of plastic type materials instead of the original style potmetal.  That might make a difference too.




I'm definitely a fan of omitting the mounting holes for the vinyl top chrome trim on the C-pillars.  Those things leaked water on tons of cars.  I'd rather bend/mess up some trim pieces than deal with water seeping into the trunk compartment over it.
