Re: 1962 Dodge Script - Metal Type? / restoration? / attaching?



David,

Most of the bezels and emblems were pot metal and are subject to pitting but can be restored and re-chromed. Broken fastening pins is common but can also be repaired. I have several hood letters with broken pins and my fix will be to gently drill out the broken stud/pin and insert a "new" pin and fasten it with JB Weld. There are no new pins but salvage metal or other pin-type materials can be substituted for the original pin. Since my hood letters have small delicate pin type fasteners, I will be using rivet pins which will be much stronger & straighter than the originals. Your fastening pins may be a bit thicker/larger diameter and you may investigate using some metal bar stock from Lowes/Home Depot or your local hardware store in the proper diameter, then cut to fit.

Let us know how it goes.

Hi all,

I'm posting this message that was misdirected.

Thanks,

 What type of metal was used for Dodge Emblems in the 60’s?

 I have two 500 scripts. One has one pin missing, the other has both
 pins missing.

 Is there a way to restore the pins?

 Or, fasten them using an adhesive?

 Any recommendations for having them re-Chromed?

 Thanks

 David C Hurd
