    I wanted to start a new thread because my searches are never successful.

    what else besides 3m double sided tape have you used to reattach badges on the side and back of your taco?

    I want to be able to blow dry them off if they need another coat of paint so no epoxy.

    thanks

    Why wouldn't you want to use 3M? It's what the stock badges had, its' what every other car has that isn't bolted on direct... :/ If they can stand the 120F+ temp in AZ...

    Go with the tape. I have read someone glued them on, i guess thats ok if you plan on never taking them off.

    I'd also be worried about other adhesives (gurilla glue, epoxy, ect) damaging the paint, at least the clear coat if nothing else.

    stock badges do not come with 3m double sided tape. It is more of a glue they use. if you think 3m is good enough then it problably is but i just wanted other options.

    thanks
