    Question Can anyone recommend a strong glue for the grill emblem?

    I just replaced the stock grill to an aftermarket and I need to change the emblem from the grill I took off to the new one. (Already took emblem off using a heated gun). Can anyone recommend a really good strong glue to use that I can get from like AutoZone, Walmart, etc ? Thanks!

    JB Weld but it takes hours to cure and you will never get it off again or maybe gorilla glue. Home Depot

    Either 3M double sided trim tape or 3M plastic emblem and trim adhesive

    I have used that 3m ahhesive glue and it works fine. Attached a emblem a few years ago and still holding strong.

    I'd bet money it was originally attached with the double sided tape. Either 3M product will work fine. Construction adhesive and arts and crafts glue isn't quite right for this application.

    3m won't hold up if the surfaces aren't cleaned correctly. you could try stripping all the old 3m and putting new (50/50 shot) or try using spray adhesive but be careful of over spray , spray let it get tacky and it'll be fine
