Hi,

I am putting my Troopie back together and have a couple of badges whose plastic tabs broke when being taken off for painting. (mostly the "toyota landcruiser badges on either side of the hood). Any suggestions on how to re-attach??

Check with SOR or other vendors. I don't think they cost that much.

Well, I guess it depends on what you call too much.

You may be able to put your broken badge back in the right place and put a dab of hot melt on it from the inside of the apron through the hole.

You may be able to buy a used apron that has the badge on it for less. I'll be looking for one myself soon.

They are available from Toyota brand new (at least for a '79 they are, haven't checked other years). Weren't all that pricey.

Thanks for the info, was hoping to use my old badges....was thinking that i could superglue some tiny flat head bolts to badge and just add nuts.....

do you think that will work?...i guess if it doesnt and they fly off I will know where to get more!

Will the silicone RTV material allow the badge to ever be removed without damaging it in future?....maybe i should make them more permanent....had anyone had any badges stolen?
