1968 Custom interior seat back emblem backing plates
« on: July 31, 2010, 05:06:20 PM »
Anyone need correct backing plates for 1968 custom/houndstooth seat back emblems.  I was unable to locate these, so had a local metal fabricator make a die/stamp, and manufacture me some.  They are the correct shape to recess the emblem, are made of galvanized steel, and are correct size and shape of original.  Only difference is emblem mounting holes are round (vs square on factory).  I'm not in the parts business, but figured since I had to pay for the stamp anyway, maybe someone else can benefit too.  Estimate cost would be $11.00 ea.  Can provide photos if anyone is interested

I'm interested, too.   I am currently fabbing some up according to some suggestions.  But a more correct and/or better fitting part might be more desirable.  Could you post some pics, please.
