Andy,

Dont know what they are called, but they are round sprung steel washer type things with spokes pointing towards the centre. You just have to push them onto the 2 lugs? I tapped mine home with a small socket and pin hammer.

They are called starlock washers
Available on eBay £1.70 for 10 with option on size.
Andrew suggest you try Margnor Fasteners at Jacobs Well.
As Stewbie suggested it’s best to just stick the badge on before painting as getting the starlock washer back off without breaking the pins will be very difficult.

Can anyone point me in the direction of some instructions on fitting the grab handle on the passenger side? I recall an article about it somewhere, but can't find it. I did find Gerry's one from 1999 in the 'technical articles' list that can be found in the member's database, but that's no use unfortunately - it's about original cars.

A mini update - realised I've left this thread rather unattended-to, sorry!

I got a Beclawat badge from Gerry, and didn't want to drill and tap the screen frame. Here's what I did:

1. Here are the bits - I'm using brass pins from unsuccessful attempts at picture hanging. They're just the right size:

2. File the back of the pin heads so they fit properly flush when in the hole:

3. Glue pins in:

4. Cut excess off pins and file flat:

5. Apply 3M tape:

6. Stick! It's not very flush but is more noticeable in the picture than in real life:

Andy,

CPU heatsink tape is an excellent alternative. Wafer thin and sticks very securely.

My bonnet and boot badges were secured with this 8 years ago and are not going anywhere.

Dave.

Thanks Dave - can't remember last time I stuck a heatsink on a CPU! I'll have to see what's on eBay...
