Default Chrome door spears with emblem question

So I saw a PT at the junkyard that had chrome door spears on the rear doors, but the spears had "PT Cruiser" embossed on the flat end. I haven't seen this before in the year I've been haunting the yards for PT parts and they were too damaged to be of any use but....I think I might want a pair to replace my normal chrome ones.

Anyone know anything about this particular style of spear? Was it an aftermarket thing?

Thanks for the info. I guess I'll just keep my eyes open on my yard trips in case a salvageable pair ever pops up. Not a high priority item, but the kind of thing that tickles my fancy I guess.

I've harvested four sets of chrome spears from salvage PT's. And I've never come across some with emblems on them. That would be cool to see.

I have a brand new set but they are expensive. I might decide to sell mine at some time in the near future.

Hey Bubba, would you happen to have a chrome center cap for the stock chrome wheels of an 03 GT? They're 2 1/8"diameter. Got one off ebay and it's only 2".

Can you please post a pic of it, would like to see what it looks like, thanks

I found this pic on the net, you can barely see the emblem. But that would also be a cool place to put a small chrysler winged emblem, like what is on the steering wheel (a little smaller though) with some double sided tape.

I'd love to add chrome spears to my '06. I haven't checked the FSM yet, so I'm gonna ask here: How are they attached? Are they bolted on or was double-sided tape used?

And if it's the tape method, how would you remove them without ruining them?

I had the chrome spears added to my PT as mine originally had the stock color matched spears. I found a MOPAR set on ebay, and there are numerous aftermarket types available. Some are just covers that apply over the existing spears. They are held on with double-sided tape. I had a body shop remove the old set and install the new ones as I didn't want to attempt it, for fear of causing some damage in the removal process. However, I did have the body shop add additional tape as when I opened the spears, there were just a few small strips on them and there is plenty of room to add more tape. There will be some chime on here giving you advice on how to do it yourself. Good luck with the project, they do look good!

Here's one set I found:

The covers use two sided tape also. But go over the existing ones. Clean these very well. Remove any wax etc. If removing and using oem. Some use dental floss. I like spider wire fishing line. You just saw through the two sided tape. Looping I've one end and pulling back and firwards in a sawing motion, pulling the string to the opposite end of the molding. Get all the residue off anything to be attached to and or applied over.

Sorry for not replying to the request for pics of my Spears with the wording. I have been out of commission with a broken leg/ankle since the first of September. I will post as soon as I get them unpacked. They are quite rare as mentioned but also very nice looking and genuinely unique to the cruiser.
