Source for "Flag Strip" Inserts on '76 Cutlass Salon?

I need a source for the transparent-plastic-covered "flag strip" inserts which adhere to the chrome "Cutlass Salon" emblems on our '76 Salon's front fenders. Any leads?

Fusick makes them,but they're complete with the chrome metal backing. Very nice reproduction I used them on my girlfriends '76. part #SE-7391F $30 each. I don't know of anyone that sells the flag inserts by themselves. You might try calling Fusicks, maybe they can just sell you the flag inserts separately since they obviously have a source for them. Olds used a similar flag emblem on the '80s cutlass-cieras. It's very close in size to the ones on the salons & it's just peel & stick on,no studs. I've seem them on epay from time to time

Wow, thanks for those leads, Rob! I had no idea that anyone might be reproducing the entire emblem.

Jeff, not sure if you know this but Original Parts Group also sells them. They also sell a few other things for the 76-77 years. I bought a hood ornament from them for my 76'. The only thing I found was the shipping to Canada was far to expensive in comparison to Fusick and the Parts Place. Given that I wouldn't ever buy from OPGI again.

Rob,

I just received my flag emblems from Fusick --- they're beautiful!

Now all I need to find out is how to R&R them. The new ones came with new nuts to install them . . . and since I can't see/feel the backside of the old ones while they are still installed, I can only assume that they are attached the same way. I have tried prying (gently!) with a plastic trim tool at the point where the pins go through the fender (per the new ones), but no luck.

I'll post a separate "How Do I Do It?!?" thread about this shortly.

Jeff
