So the next questions is how do they mount??? Is it a pin and a hole or some type of adhesive to stick it to the fender???? Or does it really matter?????

On my truck the emblem area was commandered by the OP to put in the farm tractor turn signals. At some point I will need to know how far apart the pins are in the stock emblem and where it is located on the cowl panel.

I also need to know the dia and length of the pins. Are they the same from 48 to 52 regardless of material of the emblem???

I have cast F2 and 54 F-250, F-350 emblems and boomerangs cause it impossible to find great looking used emblems and no one seems to make them in aftermarket. Certainly recommend aluminum over pewter.
