RE: [Chrysler300] 300 G Grille Emblem





It sounds like Rich B was right…better to ride with possibly limited adhesion of silicone or RTV , than to take a chance on aggressive solvents…I think I have used the WS stuff without issues but why chance it. I have used the weatherstrip stuff many times to hold the numerals to the C-G side emblems. It fills the holes from behind, avoids those clips which are frankly lousy, hard to get tight and can break the little pin trying to get off) (you can add those clips too), but also prevents rattling and looseness and falling off. Not that any of us have lost a 3, zero or F off a side Medallion.

 

Factory ones sometimes have a big ball of hard body sealant behind the medallion . So they had some issues day one too.

This is from the " Tech Articles " from our website

 

Now that the alignment nub is gone, you will have to carefully position the emblem
to the proper orientation. RTV adhesive can be used to secure the medallion.
RTV sets slowly to give plenty of time to get the orientation correct.
Mike Falcone writes: "I used 3M double sided auto molding trim tape. It has been on for two years and it still looks great."
Charlie in Ottawa writes: "I used PL Premium construction adhesive. It has been on my car for
5 years with no bleed through and secure as a rock,"
Bob Jasinski writes: "GE RTV silicone clear sealant. 30 years, no problems."

However, one club member used "3M Plastic Emblem & Trim Adhesive" to secure the medallion
and discovered this adhesive attacked the paint and ruined the medallion. 

 

That was me who used the " 3M Plastic Emblem and Trim Adhesive ". I set it in place , went back a few minutes later and saw that the adhesive was eating through and melting my brand new emblem that I bought from the club. That was like throwing 50 bucks in the trashcan.

I ordered a new emblem and used  "Permatex Clear RTV Silicone Adhesive Sealant ". That was about 8 years ago and its still intact.

super glue may discolor the paint on the back of the emblem.  I used 3M auto emblem and trim adhesive double sided tape with no problem. Available at most auto parts stores.

 Hi All,

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

 

 

                                                              & nbsp;  Thanks,

 

                                                                 Val Jeffers
