How to mount stock SS badge to heritage grille?

Hey guys, I purchased a factory SS badge. I want to put it on the heritage grille. The problem is, where I want to put it, the badge is too skinny, and falls in between the horizontal bars of the heritage grille. I've got some epoxy, but I can't seem to make it fit to where I can epoxy it to the front of the grille. Does anyone else have a method to attach it?

Thanks!

Alright, figured out a way to do it:

Went and bought some small nuts/bolts at Home Depot. About 1.00 for 5 sets. I just used 2. I epoxied 2 of the bolts to the back of the SS badge with epoxy i had left over from my AAC afterburner kit. I then dremmeled out the lid of an ipod case (the plastic is pretty sturdy and clear, figured it make a good backing plate for the emblem). I then dremmeled 2 holes in the plastic to let the bolts go through. I simply put the nuts on the bolts after that and tightened them down. It's pressure fitted between the front and back of the grille. It looks perfect, and cost $1.00.
