Some of the pins that hold the emblems on my newly painted side covers are broken off so I will have to glue them on. Since I am dangerous around anything sticky and do not want to mess up Woodbutchers excellent paint job I though I should ask first.

Dave, I used the automotive double back molding tape to put the emblems on my side covers when I had to change them out. And have used them on my 1500 after moving some stuff around. So far it is holding great. Took a pair of scissors and trimmed the excess tape from around the letters before I pulled the red plastic off the back sticky. Just another option besides glue.

That is what i use also, good stuff, great holding power and you could still take it of if you need to without messing up the paint.

It\'s not what you buy, it\'s what you build.

I thought about that but the emblems fit close against the cover and the double back tape would space them out from the cover.

The 3M stuff is pretty thin. Its not like the white foam type double back. The tape itself is a grey color and plyable. It puts the emblems pretty dang close. I bought what I use at Advanced Auto.

+1 one the thin gray two sided automotive tape. Trim it back a little further than the emblem so when you push it on the tape doesn't show. Used it on my 1500 to replace missing emblems works great. After three years never had any emblems fall off. If you don't like the results the emblems (with a little patience) will come off without damaging the paint.

David. 3M makes a clear emblem adhesive, try putting a dab where the pins broke off, there should still be enough pin left to guide it into place. That way you won't have too much trouble getting it where you don't want it. Any problems, let me know.

Thats the stuff. I just took off my old floor board rubbers and i cut new ones. I took a Soldering brush and put the glue on with it and put the rubbers on and they look great. That glue is Great stuff.
