Can anyone confirm the correct overall height and pin-to-pin dimensions for the front fender Ghia badges? I measured 38mm tall and estimated 18mm center to center for the mounting pins (taken from the backside as mounted on a car) but not sure it's the original type. I see badges for sale in many sizes. I need to drill holes in fenders before car goes to paint.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Tim -

I just measured mine - It's 38mm tall.

I couldn't get a good pin measurement inside the fender, but it looks the same as yours.

My car is a '73 L model.

Agree with Simon on the mounting, as I looked at mine, it's a little loose, and is scratching the paint due to the motion.

I have one laying around with a broken locating pin I was able to measure and got the same measurements.

Why drill holes, better is to use glue for the mounting.


Thanks Simon, I'm thinking about that too.

LOL.

No, they're plastic ones I had handy since my calipers are at the shop.
