GT emblems and '69 style Boss 302 stripes
I'm not a frequent contributor to these forums... it seems I only post when I have a problem. I hope that's not a problem.
I have a Torch Red '05 GT convertible to which I want to add Black '69 style Boss 302 stripes. The type of stripe I have bought has the Boss 4.6 lettering where the GT emblem currently is. I know that I have to remove the GT emblem with fishing line and a good supply of Goo-Gone. That's all OK as I just removed my red factory spoiler to install a black one so I have experience with the fishing line (30 pound test worked fine but the 8 pound test kept breaking).
My question is what to do about the two holes in the fender into which the emblem locator pins fit. Should I fill these in before applying the stripe? If so, what should I use? On the other hand, if I should just leave them "empty", behind the stripe, is there a danger of bubbles forming or crap getting into them and ruining my stripes? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
