Re: [Chrysler300] 300 G Grille Emblem






I did almost the exact same thing except that I soldered the bolts to the plate. Works like a charm and if I need to replace the grill the emblem is easily removed.

Hi all:
 
Years ago,  decided to replace the grill emblem of my F with a new one.  It seems like it took 2 men and a boy to remove the old one.  So I decided on a method to install the new one so that I could remove it easily if need be.  I took a piece of sheet metal, cut it to the shape of the emblem and pounded it to the spherical shape of the back side of the emblem.  Next, I drilled two holes in the grill where the emblem would be mounted.  I soldered two small bolts, with the heads ground down to almost nothing, so that the position of the bolts matched the ones I drilled in the grill.  I then used JB Weld to mount the emblem to the metal I had fashioned.  After the JB Weld had cured, I mounted the assembly to the grill.  It's been there now for perhaps 15 years.  The JB Weld has not damaged the backing of the emblem.
