69 Fastback medallions

Recommended Posts

I think mine are on the wrong side.  Both are running towards the rear of the car.

I tried to slide them off but they are on there firm.  Do they slide up or another direction?

If they are both on backwards, you need only to swap them in the correct orientation but to the other side. Somebody likely flipped them intentionally, possibly jacking with you or the previous owner. Ridge is right, place a block of wood at the bottom of the medallion and hit upwards.

My family has owned this car since 86 (See my avatar pic).  I think it was a painter that put them on backwards.  I'll try the wood block trick, thanks.

I got the passenger side off with a wood block.  Big mistake.

 

Back side is rusted out, painter put them on with double sided tape and it left a huge dried out paint and rusty mess.  Looked like a piece of cardboard was between the glass and back to create a tight fit.

Yep, those will need to be replaced. Are the pins still in the B pillar? 

On that side yes, you can see the pins in the picture if you look closely.  I don't want to assume the pins are under the other one until I pull the medallion off.
