Default best way to put a badge back on?

So I debadged the truck, with plans of relocating the hemi badges. My question is, is there a better way than 3M 2 sided tape?

I don't think that there is a good way to put them back on, once they've been removed.

You're on the right track though, some good double sided tape is about the best way to do it, it's how the factory ones are stuck on. By using the double sided tape, you always have the option of removing it again if needed.

The only other option that I know of would be something like super glue, and I'm not sure that, that would be such a good idea

Good luck

Exco

I've used the 3M tape on everything from badges to fender flares. Never had a problem. Just make sure both surfaces are ABSOLUTELY clean. Use rubbing alcohol for surface prep and there won't be any issues.

seems to be a pretty good seal on there. I use dentured (sp?) alcohol to prep gun parts before finishing so I tried it on the both right where I stuck the badge and it seems like a good lockup
