My car is missing the F O R D lettering across the hood. It has the holes in the hood for installation, but the PO never re-installed after a paint job. How are the letters installed, I haven't bought them yet. Do they come with clips to hold them in place. Haven't done this before and am trying to gauge how much trouble this is going to be.

Thanks.

They should come with tube nuts that press into the holes. Then just press in the letters and they'll expand the nuts to make it tight.

They should come with… I think they are called, barrel clips or nuts. If the old ones are gone, gently press the new ones down flush with a ________ ( I used an unsharpened pencil in order not to mar the finish if I slipped). Then carefully press the new letters into the holes (this time I used a small piece of wood). If you would like to be unique, you could always drive a D O R F.

Great, thanks guys. Doesn't sound too difficult. The car will start looking respectable again.
