      Depends mostly on the year of the car. The older ones such as a '68
      usually have nuts on the back of moldings & emblems. Some of the ones
      that have no access to the back of the panel will have clip-ons. With
      the clip-ons, you usually have to pull down a little on the molding
      while prying out with a screwdriver - all very carefully. Obviously
      with the nuts you have to pull the inner fenders & such to access
      those. Grilles & such will be bolted on - should be easy enough to
