Question

I am going to be replacing some of my current emblems on my 69. The car is currently a Z/28 clone. I am about to purchase the emblems. They sell a kit called the Std. emblem barrel nut kit. they say these are push on types. Has anyone used these mounts before, and are they decent? they also mention the original style screw on types. not sure if these would be better or not. Note: I am looking at the classic Industries barrel nut kit, pg. 203 in the C2000 catalog. Where could I buy the screw on types?

On a side note, I just recieved an order from classic industries and the parts were beautiful. no flaws at all.

Thanx everyone for there advice...

Sincerely,
Scottson

Cool

hi scott I tried many different types of barrel clips after my camaro was painted. the camaro fender emblem is very difficult to install without almost removing the fender. for this reason the body shop and i hoped the barrel clips would work. due to the draft angle and amount of chrome plating on each post being different we had no success and removed the fenders. all other emblems on the camaro have rear access to the posts making the original style nuts the better choice.

I used the barrel nuts on the fender emblems on my 67 (Camaro, cross flags, and 350 emblems). They went in easy (make painstaking measurments, measure 20 times and drill once, and file the holes out carefully to accomodate the nuts). I pushed the nuts into the holes I drilled in the fenders and then pushed the emblems into the barrel nuts. The emblems are very secure in the fenders and can be removed without much affair as well--no fender removal required.

You could also use trim/emblem adhesive around the posts.

For the Camaro emblems, on my 68 fenders, I used the push on type. Just be very careful when drilling. I used a set good of drill bits and started with a thin one and keep going up in size 'til the desired hole is achieved, so the push on type went in perfectly. Again for the Camaro emblems it was OK but for the SS emblems in the same fenders it was another story, the stems are so thick and the barrel nuts ended being thicker than the stems so I decided to put some black silicone behind them to hold it in place. I jusyt have to be careful when washing the car. This until I have to remove the fenders for any reason and then I'll use the original nuts.
