Re: [Chrysler300] 1957,58,59 300 side ornamentation letter and number retention





Just checked the medallions that I purchased from Gary Goers years ago. There is at least 1/2" protruding from the back of the 'C' through to the back of the medallion. Gary supplied the clips. So if you can't find any, he may be able to send along a few.

I would think any auto body supply store would have clips that will do the job. They sell small packets of 5 or 6 that will either press on or cut a groove into the pin and spiral down until the letter is locked in place.

Marv,
    Try contacting Larry Jett.  I remember he was looking for a C on his side medallion that said good-bye on his Gaugin convertible years back.  Somehow he got the letter and affixed it so that he could sell it to Jeff Miklas!   By the way, when I replaced my side bezels, etc., I used the small fasteners and epoxied over them not for rattles but as insurance against what Larry had experienced.  To this day after driving my C I always glance at my side letters to see if they stayed with me or fled for a divorce!  I guess that is one of those subliminal issues that makes my pulse race when lifting the door to the storage garage when taking Mopsy out!   300’ly, Rob Kern

To any C, D or E members who have had to secure the numbers and letters to the side quarter plastic disc.  I have searched but have not been able to locate the small tinnerman like clips that hold the cast numbers and letter to the plastic red white and blue disc.  I can epoxy them but without some mechanical hold onto the pins I fear they will only break lose.  I have ordered numerous clips and push-ons but with so small a height to the pin I can't get any to hold.  Anyone else have a similar experience.  And thanks to all who responded to my last question.  Marv Raguse....57 and 58 300s...
