    so I removed the lock mechanism inside and found the three studs holding the tailgate emblem in place on my 56 chevy wagon, however they don't resemble nuts. they are obviously threaded as I can see the remainder of the studs sticking through the faster. but if they aren't hex heads how do I remove them? please don't tell me I have to fight my hand in that hole and use pliers!!
    and I can't take a clear picture to post on here. but surely someone on here has don't this on a trip five wagon .

    Speed nuts? Oh BTW, don't google "pictures of old nuts". I'm going to need a stiff drink after work.

    I’ve got a 70’s p20 van and all those emblems are speed nuts that the hex is partially wore off. Theyre not real tight, a socket got them off

    Ought to be three studs with the crappy sheet metal nuts that hardly have any hex. May be buried in dirt or undercoating.Get in there with a wrench or 1/4''drive ratchet. 3/8 socket IIRC

    They are a pain to get off. Go ahead and cut your finger tip and get it over with. I'm betting they had some sort of bastard socket on the line to tighten them. Lot a time they turn but have to slide a door pad tool under to lift as you turn.

    I like the geometric pattern on the 57 210 wagon.
