I thought about that, but I wasn't so sure if it'll hold too well (summer = heat = "tape" unsticking). but thanks! I'll give'r a try.

It will hold, just clean the surface so it sticks.

Head to your friendly neighbourhood autobody shop, and ask nicely for a piece of 3M double sided tape. It's actually made for auto use, especially for fastening badges, etc to cars. You may have to give the guy a $5 spot in exchange.

Another option is to buy a roll of the stuff at Lordco's paint shop, or White and Peters. Expect to pay around $35 for a roll.

That's what I did. I really like the way the auto tape works. If I had any left I would offer it to you, but I already gave it away.

Good call Picard, that stuff is great.
I have a lot left on my roll, but I doubt you'll want to head out to Langley/Surrey to pick it up.

the 3m stuff is really good - just make sure you use a good degreager/cleaner to clean the trunk first. windex will work well.

Yup that's what a lot of body shops use to put them back on and also moundings and stuff to.

I was watching OCC and they used 3M to put these crazy water jet cut chromed metal flames on the black paint job on the fenders, and tank it looked hot..
