They usually hold on pretty good, unless you have a couple broken tabs or something.

I didn't know they made aftermarket ones?

I bet you could find an Olds cap that'd fit in there... Wink

Wrap around the tabs with electrical tape.
The extra thickness makes them much tighter & the tape gives them more grab

Hey, be careful with that site, I opened it and Firefox blocked it because of a security hazard. It apparently steals personal data.

Justin, my Firefox doesn't block that site. I have bought from them 3 times, great product, quick service and priced fairly. I use those emblems on the caps on my 9C1 wheels, both wagons.

I would not hesitate to buy again.

Hmm weird. Thanks for the heads up.

On that note, are these the ones that are in the center of N97 caps? I have a couple faded ones that I wanna replace.

You could also find a set of the bowtie caps from a FWD Impala/Monte Carlo/Malibu in a salvage yard if you wanted, so you have four matching ones, likely at a fraction of the cost of just one SS cap. Cool
