    Okay, I took a couple pictures of the clip and the letters. The picture has a “D” that I broke the posts off of and an “L” with the posts intact. Also, there is a picture of one of the little clips I was able to preserve. The post is 1/4″ wide. I’ll see if there are any clips in the Restoration Specialities catalog that might work for this. Very interesting.

    I spent many many hours looking on the internet for those clips with no luck. There is nothing on Restoration Specialties even close. Fortunately for me Eric had just picked up a car to part out and the trunk was a mess so he cut the area the letters were out of the trunk skin in one sheet then removed the letters and clips from pushing gently from behind. My letters were in excellent condition but the clips were all badly rotted and most all of them disintegrated when removing the letters. The emblem adhesive Eric mentioned has been used with good success.

    Thanks, Sandy. I’ve been able to preserve a few of the clips, but most are disintegrated like yours. I’ll definitely look into the emblem adhesive. That is probably the best option. Thanks, again.

    Looks like I have 12 good ones and another one that will work but not as good.
