    Grill Medallion?

    I seem to remember (or perhaps wishful thinking ) that there were replacement medallions available the the stainless grill trim. The original was chrome plated brass with the W in the center...2 and 3/8 inch diameter. Any ideas? I've got the original but it needs re plating and a couple of new tabs (or some really good two sided tape.)

    Thanks
    Paul

    Hi Paul,

    Is this what you are looking for?

    Not sure if this matters (and I'm going off memory), but I think the fancy stainless T grill trim only came on the wagons ("Station Sedan") and Jeepsters:

    Thanks Dan and Dave. the one from KW is evidently 7/8 inch in diameter (according to their catalog) Mine is 2 3/8.. And yes it is from the stainless grill trim from a Jeepster or Wagon. I got one years ago that was pretty dinged up. It's getting straighter now, after numerous hours of careful tapping and filing. Soon, hours of polishing will begin. So, given that no stainless trim was harmed during this endeavor, it is indeed going on my truck. I've managed to straighten the medallion so I'll try to have it re-plated locally.

    Again, thanks for the help
    Paul
