    Spin it any way you want, Eric!

    History will be the judge of us as caretakers.

    I'm with Exeric on this one. I have the exact same problem with a pair of Deluxe fender badges that I recently picked up for my '53 FLE. My intent is to do the least amount of harm possible to original parts. A good double-sided tape will be my choice. Using this material will cause absolutely no harm to the badge, will not thermally stress the material, and can be removed using a heat gun thereby causing no change to the original metal finish.

    If a quality tape material had been available in 1953, I'm sure the factory would have made use of it.

    I am sure you are right!

    By all means, Folks,

    If you lack basic skills, go for the gum!

    Otherwise you might burn yourself.

    I'd use a piece of 3M Trim Mounting Tape like this:

    Its the same stuff the Eagle Iron badges are mounted with.

    Really Tom ?? So if someone doesn't agree with you, they lack basic skills?

    It's not about agreement, Bill,

    It's about patience, care, effort, attention to detail, and whether you want posterity to respect the hardware or not.

    What the hell, they are all just piles o' parts anyway, so go for the Gorilla Glue, Folks!

    (Just don't get it in your eyes,..)

    You should have been a ship's captain, Tom. You always go down with the ship You're position on this issue is not defensible based on your past history of reverence for genuine condition, and non-interference. Anything can be fixed, but in this case I have to default to the solution that provides the least impact on genuine parts. Lead solder, or silver solder are fixes that could go wrong, even in the hands of an expert.

    I do this for a living.

    My previous posts gave away all the tips needed.

    If you can't do it, find a pro. Or bubblegum I guess...
