    Applying retro emblems

    I was thinking about getting some 69 z/28, blue bowtie, and camaro emblems. What is the best way to put them on without drilling holes? I was thinking cutting off the mounting tabs and seeing if i could find some think double sided tape and cut them to fit. Any other ideas or suggestions?

    Yes two sided 'car trim tape' will do the trick.

    They make a special glue for that as well.

    I've used both, 3M automotive emblem tape and Automotive Goop.

    The tape works fine if you've got a good surface area, but for things like Scripts, you'll need the goop. Personally I think that Goop is more permanent as well, so consider that.

    And to get those studs off of the emblems, just use a cut off wheel and then grind it flat, with a lot of the emblems the backing is recessed; I find it helpful to use liquid steel or other metal epoxy to make the back flush, then go from there.
