    Okay so while at the Nats I bought a set of centre caps from "F-Body Store" for Matilda's wheels. Now the caps stay on very well and they're on there pretty tightly. But all the little Firebird emblems are gone! 3 fell off the same day, on the way home, and she lost the last one yesterday while driving home from a local car festival! grumpy image

    Does anyone know where I can find a set of the little emblems? I don't need a new set of centre caps, but I would like a new set of Firebird logos that fit on them!

    Sorry to hear about Matilda's wheels! weepy image I think YEAR ONE might have them. The emblems are probably about 4 bucks apiece! I'm still in Maine, I can check when I get home. I'd call where you got them and tell them what you think of their glue!

    Oh definitely! I think I have a Year One catalogue somewhere that I can look at. I'll check it out. Hopefully they'll stick on a little better this time.

    Poor Tilda. They looked so nice too! *pets her carcar*

    Thanks though, Sue! I'll let you know how that goes! smile image

    I would call the folks you bought them from first, maybe they will step up and send you some new medallions. But yearone, classic industries, ames, national parts depot, and maybe even a local tire wheel store could get them. Word of caution, when mounting them, use silicone instaed of glue. My experience has been that the glue will ruin the paint used to make the bird stand out from the background color.

    Thanks for the advice! Yeah, I still have yet to contact them because I've been busy but I need to do so this week. >.< As for YearOne, They're definitely my next stop!
