Sonor Teardrop Badge- Nail or Tack Replacements
 
Hello.

I just rewrapped my early 60s Teardrop kit.

Pulling the old badges off, the nails were bent and I need to find a replacement tiny nail that will hold the badge but not protrude through the thin 3 ply shell.

Does anyone here have a recco on that? Or any experience replacing an old Sonor badge?

(PS it is the kind with the Sonor large badge and secondary Western Germany strip below it)

THNX ALL

Use a correct diameter nail to put a starter hole in the shell without going thru the shell. Cut the nail off to the depth you want and attach the badge.

Take the badge to any hardware store to get correct size nails.
