hood emblems

Postby Barbwire » Sat May 27, 2017 9:08 pm

My stainless steel emblems on the side of the hood on my late 1956 cub had the brass pins come off, as I was removing the emblems to repair and pain the hood. How can they be reattached?

I'd try to epoxy one pin back in place and see if it can withstand some stress. I'd look for a specialty epoxy that might setup and remain somewhat flexible. Another option might be silver soldering the pins back on, but test one first. Rough up the pin, broken off area before reattaching so that there's good bonding. Good luck.

Thanks for the reply. I wondered how heat would effect the stainless if soldered or brazed. I also wondered if JB Weld would work but have not used it to know what it would hold.

There are a bunch of different name brand epoxies with different uses and strengths. Read the labels on each epoxy package to determine the usage and strength.

Auto parts and hardware stores for epoxies.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Why not go the way of modern auto emblems and use the appropriate thickness of double stick tape? The kind that's made for emblems, not hanging a poster.

Good luck with them. Aligning the pins with the hole is a bear. What finally worked was JB weld applied to the broken pins inserted most of the way. Masking tape held the emblems tight for a day. I then pushed them in the rest of the way.

Thanks for the ideas and excellent advise. I'll give it a try but I have a lot of prep work to do prior to painting it. I sure appreciate the quick help and have enjoyed reading the forum since I bought my cub a few months ago.
