Will these fit on the fenders of a 73 620? Like.. Just curious if i need to sticky tape them or if they work with the stock holes and inserts Fyi they're already ordered because these are (in my opinion) the best looking emblems. https://m.ebay.com/i...r-/192301806083

Stick them on.

 

To each.. their own. I think the '73 fender emblem by far the nicest 620.

L16s were in the '73, L18s in the '74 and L20Bs in the '75-'79 620.

Those emblems you posted have pegs on the back side.

Pegs fit through holes in fender and clips on the back side to hold them secure. I don't see the clips in pic.

You can't hang if your nuts haven't dropped...it's physics

Those emblems look like the rear quarter emblems on a 1200.
For reference...

Ok, it is a little out of focus but you can get an idea.

EDIT: Another idea, if they do not come with the clips, is to cut pieces of vacuum hose to go over the part of pin that sticks through the fender. Not my idea but something I picked up somewhere along the way

They will fit but the holes most likely won't line up......
I think those are similar if not the same ones I'm using on my 521....

I welded the original holes then Made a cardboard template to drill the holes....
You might get lucky with just drilling new holes, and the emblem covers the old holes..

The cursive script befits a car more than a truck, I think.

Do you guys know a good way to repaint the decals? On my B210 I have all three decals but the color is worn out of them. Should I just paint them with some gloss paint as if I were painting a model car/airplane?

They're chrome covered? Anything should do.

Proper push on fastening clips are in the misc fastener drawer at O'Reileys and other parts stores.  Why screw around with rubber hoses that will start to deteriate as soon as they meet smoggy air ?

Paint pen works well.

Kelmo is correct the OP link is to a 1200 with an automatic transmission, standard transmissiom 1200s were non cursive lettering.
