Stick on badge

Post by JayT » Mon May 18, 2009 1:32 pm

I accidently ripped off the '3' from the side badge on the weekend whilst cleaning the car.

Anyone know whats the best thing to use to stick it back on??

Cheers

I did think about de-badging a few months ago when I first bought the car but I actually like the badges.

try a little scotch double stick tape.
I think that's all they used at the factory
only problem is now you have gotten wax where it goes so it might not stay on
Out driving my car!!
See ya on the road!!

A little alcohol will fix that. On the car not in your person. :thumbsup:

"Badges, We dont need no stinking badges"
3M mounting tape. You have to cut it to fit, But thats what most auto makers mount badges with.

Problem with debadging a 3.0 is that people might think its a 2.0 :poke:
