Several years ago, I saw someone posting a picture of a special made radiator badge mounting kit. Seems like it had some sort of plastic studs that fit the badge holes, went through the radiator core, and had some type of press on retainers on the back side that worked something like a zip tie. Has anyone else seen this. Do you know where to find them?
I attach them to my tool boxes. Radiator badges are going to block cooling air and eventually cause damage to the radiator. I have so many if they were all on the car they would completely block air flow. As it is one of my tool boxes is completely covered. Rather than pitch them in a drawer I think they give my tool boxes a bit of added charm.
Most plastics become brittle with age. Why not use brass wire?
Maybe modified electric radiator fan mounting straps/zip ties will work.
I use 1/8"stainless allthread with dome nuts on each end. On the back I use a piece of flat strip with a rubber gasket to protect the fins.

Thanks guys. I may just put it back on with the screws I had in it before. I was just considering alternatives. Had to take it off to have leak around the inlet pipe repaired.
This is an old reproduction script with long brass screws soldered to it:
