Ok Guy's,

I have a great set of eyebrow rings, except that the studs are broke off.

And of course they have already been chromed.

Short of drilling a hole through the ring, what resolve have you guy's completed?

Thanks in advance, Pat

JB Weld a deep nut on it, then put a short bolt thru...

If you let the JBWeld compeltely cure before you put any torque on it...it might hold.

Won't that require a huge hole in the fender for the nut to clear?

Uhhh....probably.
another idea may be to JB weld a short stud to the backside of the trim. You might need to carefully grind away some material at the back of the trim piece, to allow space for enough JB weld to hold the stud firmly once dried. But not so much that it creates a glob that interferes with it sitting smoothly against the fender sheet metal when you mount it.

Otherwise, you're looking at new eyebrow trim pieces $$$$

If they are made of stainless steel...

I had a similiar problem with a piece of SS on my 4dht that served as a junction point for 3 other SS trim pieces just behind the rear door. The pins were also broken off.
I took it to a friend who welded on a couple of escutchin pins (steel, thin, long, threaded bolts with the heads cut off. It looked ugly but I was able to buff out all of the discoloration, no problem.

i put the eyebrows on my nomad with clear silicone. had same as you nice eyebrow but no studs. used a tube of clear silicone caulk. if i need to ever remove then i can scrape the caulk out and they will come off. been on my car for 10 years and still nice and tight. also no drilling

Thanks for the information.

That may just be the way to go.

Thanks again,

You might want to try 3M moulding tape. It is a double sided tape that has very strong adhesion. It comes in different widths. This might work well with no holes or mess to worry about.
