In Reply to: WTB: used 9n hood and grill badge posted by chris eby on July 23, 2018 at 17:25:17:
Do you need an early 9Nhood -the one for the snap-in battery cover? If so, I don't know -try the fleabay site for hoods and original badges. In my opinion, I suggest to just spring for a repop from Carpenter. They are new, exact, and you won't be unhappy. I bought one of his 8N badges for my early 8N project back in 2003 and compared it to my original and there is no difference other than age. The fasteners are 3/16" Speed Nuts. I have a few sets of both the FORD badge and the FERGSUN SYSTEM badge for my 9N project I got off ebay over the years. None are worthy of using IMHO, as the chrome and paint are all faded away. When I restore my early 9N, a new paint job isn't going to be offset by shabby badges. The cost to re-chrome alone outweighs any chance of me using them.
