How do you secure the chrome "Galaxie" to the fender? The words have 1/8" or thinner posts that go through holes, looking for ideas to secure them.

there are small inserts that go in the hole and they have teeth on the inside. put them in the holes and push the trim in. available at napa

+1 There may be a couple of different sizes available so maybe bring your trim with you to get the right ones. I think Dearborn, Macs, Ecklers, etc. have them as well.

Tanks, I see six of them with shipping at dearborn is $13.
Anyone try a J-nut or maybe a blob of epoxy in the inside?

Awesome, the posts are .125" probably "mediums." PM me if you have some extras!

I believe they're called barrel nuts if extech doesn't have the size you need and you need to source them locally. I've seen them at the hardware store and pretty sure I saw them at Lowes, too.
