Someone had rechomed the hood ornament before I bought the car. The wings are loose and will come out very easy. I was thinking of putting rubber cement in the holes and putting the wings in it to hold them but I was wondering if someone has a better idea. Thanks for any replies

There should be a metal wedge that goes between the wings on the inside of the body of the ornament which holds them securely in place.

Good Morning...There is a wedge on the inside between the wings. Take the entire thing off the car and turn it over and tighten the wedge. That should do it...If it is really stripped out, you might be able to tap it and use a one size larger small bolt...or JB Weld it from the inside...then let it sit for a day or two...Good Luck, Ernie in Arizona

If the lead wedge is missing or no longer useable, try a wooden golf tee, consider a tiny dab of epoxy as optional to hold the tee securely in place.

Well I'll be damned! I never would have thought of a Golf T!
Very creative idea. Much better than flying on one wing! Ernie in Arizona

On pot metal and aluminum when I encounter a stripped threaded hole I use Muggy Weld (MW)Super Alloy for Pot Metal. Because of the low melting point of MW it will work on chromed parts without bothering the plating by be careful and only heating to MW's melting point.
