Attaching trunk SS emblem

I like the old style SS emblems so I ordered a set for the grille and trunk. They are metal and the trunk emblem has 2 studs to attach it with. I was thinking about cutting the studs off and using 3M Mold tape to attach it rather than drilling holes. Since this is a metal emblem (heavier) I thought I would see if anyone has had any problems with them staying on?

The stock ones are on with double sided tape. You should be fine.

I have old school SS emblems on mine, like you said cut the studs and smooth it out real good clean the trunk with alcohol get quality 3m tape and stick'er on there. I've had mine on for 4-5 years now. Only thing is I wish I had done was paint the inside that's white to red to match the more modern one denoting the 2SS option.

Thanks for the feedback. I am planning to paint mine to match my stripes, grey middle and red border.

I put on the '68/'69 script badging...
They had the metal studs that I ground off with a grinder / dremel.
I then backfilled the hollow emblem with JB Weld.
This gave a greater surface area to attaching using 3M double sided tape.



Double sided tape half off, getting ready to attach.

Good idea to use the JB to fill the void to get more surface area for the tape. Thanks.

The JB Weld was a pain in the rear. A syringe would have helped. Or any solid epoxy that could be applied through a single nozzle. I would probably use JBWeld again as it is solid and responded well to grinding smooth.
I felt way better about the tape knowing that there were no air gaps to trap water / debris behind the tape.
The emblems have been on about 14 months with zero issues.
