I used either PUN0003P or PUN0009P from Bresco. I can't recall which. http://www.bresco.com/acatalog/Badge_Fixes.html

When I replaced mine the pins on reverse side the digits were hollow and I use small stainless steel self tappers with stainless washers.

Rich,

Years ago, I got the numbers and clips from Christopher Neil. I think the clips could be found at any hardware store. They're the metal washers with fingers pointing towards the center. They push on but are difficult (on purpose) to take off.

Hi

I used shakeproof washers and a dab of silicone sealer.
