    centre caps... Turbo wheels

    I have taken off the griffin badges from the centre caps, so i can get the centre caps painted.

    What the easiest way to get them back on??? eg; where can i buy the sticky take to refit them...

    i stuck a badge on yesterday using superglue

    I put a light covering on the back of the badge keeping away from the very edges then just stuck it on

    the little bit of glue that came out came off using a cloth before the glue had a chance to dry

    the only mark anywhere is on the badge itself and thats cos I glued myself to the badge by mistake

    thats why I removed the badges (painted them black)

    If theyre removed then I think the superglue will be left behind or some paint will come off - simple solution, just dont remove the badges

    if u wanna stick badges on bodywork - NEVER use superglue!!!!

    use double sided trim tape avail from good motoring shops- halfords sells it

    its bloody good stuff - so good in fact i lent my roll out and never got it back......
