Hello All

I am getting ready to repaint my 1976 MG Midget. I am not sure how to remove the Midget letters from the side of the car. I do not want to muscle them off and break them. Can someone explain to me how they are fastened on?

The letters are push pins that go into little sleeves on the body.

right you are they come right off. Any idea where I can get the plastic holders. I checked Moss Motors and did not see them there. There replacement for the letters looks to be all 1 piece. Probably glue or Double sided tape to hold that on.

VB sells them part # 12-236 The Moss blind Fix part # 326-650 looks the same but Moss says it a speednut alternative.
