RE: [Chrysler300] 300 G Grille Emblem





John,

 

The concern I have is that weatherstrip cement is contact cement.  It does not allow for adjustment once the two pieces are brought together.  I would also be concerned about the solvent attacking the painted back. That's why RTV silicone works well, it stays flexible, won't attack the plastic (paint) and takes a while to cure, giving you plenty of time to step back and make sure the medallion is level and correct if needed.

I’d go 3M “clear” (yellow) “weatherstrip cement”--- it is flexible. Like rubber cement. Follow directions..trial fit, then put some , probably in a thin ring on both surfaces  let get tacky, press on. Stuff that dries or sets rock hard may crack , causing loss of emblem as plastic and metal expand differently with temp. There is probably a blob of hard stuff left behind now. I am sure there 100 opinions. Super glue is fussy stuff. I’d say that is not good. You never know if it “took off” ; also solvents in glues can attack back of emblem if lots slobbered on , = go cool and easy.

 Hi All,

             What is the best way to attach the above emblem ? I have a new tube of "super glue" but wanted help first.

 

 

                                                                 Thanks,
