    The Walmart in Evans will have some 3M tape. That's where I went and what I used when I lived there.

    The product "goop" also works very welll to attach things. Just smear it on and use some tape to hold the trim in position until it sets up. After it dries you'll need a crow bar to get it off.

    I went with the 3M indoor/outdoor tape as well. I just put my newly painted badges on about an hour ago. Best piece of advice I can give? Go buy a #1 Xacto Knife. Your life will be so much easier and you can use it on all sorts of projects.

    It's super sticky and you get the added benefit of being able to remove the badges again if you need/want to. If they started to chip or what have you.

    I just used the "plastic weld" epoxy that i used for my satoshi grill mod and they are SOLID, just be careful not to use to much as it will squeeze out the sides...
