    Ok I'm putting my badges back on my truck.. Wat kind of tape did you use.? I used the 3M tape but it's really thick and you can see it. Maybe there are different types of the 3M tape.? I've heard servo tape. Has anyone used that.? Thanks for the help.!

    The 3m is what I've used in the past. Any way you can cut it skinnier so that it fits into the recessed parts of the back of the badge?

    If you can't find a thinner 3M tape (which is available, but may be harder to come by) you can look for "Carborundum" emblem tape. Similar to 3M, but cheaper, and thinner. Most autobody supply stores will stock it.

    I used servo tape on mine. Its thin and black so you cant see it at all once installed. I got mine at an RC Car store for like $3
