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

Marv, I was looking through 62 era Chrysler spare parts yesterday and on Ebay somewhere way way down the list someone had a small bag of assorted Mopar clips for trim molding studs. As I recall, they were assorted sozes and in a cellophane bag for $6 or so.

Agree..they DO fall off , with those clips, especially upon reuse ; and the rattles. Epoxy is just a better way , even with clips.

    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...
