Cyclone Emblems

Post by caseville cyclone »

I need help on installing my Cyclone and Flag emblems on quarter panels on 65 Comet. My car is definitely a Cyclone but I can't find the mounting holes. Somebody could have changed the quarter panels which I highly doubt,or welded up the holes and performed such a good job that I can't find them. Is there anywhere I could find the dimensions for these emblems or just look at a picture and wing it. I bought the barrel nuts I need and have brand new emblems that I purchased from Crites years ago. Any help would be appreciated. Andy

Can you see any evidence of the filled holes from the inside? My Caliente emblem holes were painted over and covered, I had to do some digging around from the inside of the quarter panel.

I haven't scaped the inside of the trunk yet but a quick look I couldn't see anything. I"ll try using a fine sandpaper on the inside of the trunk and see what I can find. Thanks for the response,stay tuned. Andy

Hey Joe,guess what I found? After looking on the inside of the quarter panel and a little bit of sanding,low and behold there they were!!! This will definately make it easier to install the emblems,and they'll be in the proper place. Thanks Joe,sometimes this 72 year old Polish brain needs a push in the right direction. Thanks Andy.
