    Surely there is a nut that I can use without having to remove the fenders just to install them?. Thank You Sir for sharing.

    That is what the push pin thing it. It grabs and holds unlike the nut you have to tighten,

    they used barrel nuts...it is essentially a tube-like thing that presses into the hole in the sheet metal and the nameplate studs fit in there. they are plastic.

    Funny story about my brother in law and nameplates on cars. When he got out of the Marines in 1966 he needed a job so he went to Lynch Road Assembly plant (Plymouth) in Detroit and was hired. His job was to install nameplates on the drivers side front fender. In front of the wheel well went the engine nameplate and at the back of the wheel well was the model. So, you had to get under the wheel well and do this and the edges of the wheel well were so sharp that it cut up his hands and arms and fingers. After 4 hours of doing this he got up, walked out, and quit. When we saw him he looked like he got into a knife fight without a knife. It was hilarious. Naturally we were all over him because he was supposed to be a "tough" Marine and couldn't even last a full day.
