    I know most people use 3M double sided tape, but that's too thick and too much of a PITA for what I wanna do. Has anyone else used another adhesive succesfully? Something that's easier to form to the piece?

    3M makes an emblem adhesive. It works well, but can be messy if you're not careful.

    I haven't debadged it yet but I want to. I want to paint the badges black but the letters are skinny, unlike the ones on the tacomas, which makes working with the 3M Tape pretty painful. I might end up using it anyways, well see. How does that EMBLEM ADHESIVE work? and GOOP? I've never heard of either of those? I'm guessing it's liquid? What r the drying times?

    Clear RTV or silicone will work, a trick is to put the silicone or RTV around the edges, then use hot glue gun with a coupe dabs in the middle, then stick, the hot glue holds it good enough while the silicone sets up.
