    Anyone have any advice on how to reattach the front logo to a Grillcraft Grill? JB Weld? Epoxy? I know it has been done before . . . so please let me know what you guys think!

    I trimmed the top 2 tabs, since the didn't align with the MX grill holes. then I left the bottom tab on since it fit in the holes and used it to help center the emblem, glue with any strong glue. some leftover black rt silicone sealant worked fine for me :D

    Some people did zip ties....

    but i would try and go with an automotive glue. 3M automotive should be a good place to start. Check AAP(Advanced Auto Parts) and see what they say

    yep...good ol black adhesive silicone will do the trick. Just tape the emblem in place once you have it set where you want it, let it cure overnight and you'll be good to go.

    Try using chrome wire ties. I did and it looks great.

    Thank you to all the replied. I used a clear epoxy after zip tying the logo to the front - took the zip ties off the next morning and you couldn't rip the thing off if you tried! The best part about it was the epoxy is clear and does no show at ALL!!
