Re-affix Wheel Crest - glue rec's?

Recommended Posts

Miscreant Yout's separated 2 of my new OEM enamel wheel crests from the silver backing. One of the crests is salvageable other was bent with a screwdriver or key. Glad the tophy hunters didn't go for the bonnet crest.

In any case, is there any recommended glue to re-affix these so they stay put when I'm giv'ner? Also, not sure I want to bother pressing the crest on for 30 mins...Crazy Glue? Not a huge biggie, should I just get another set?

I used Goop brand from the auto parts store, heat & oil resistant, like heavy duty rubber cement for something similar (VW logo in engine compartment of Passat). So far so good.

Thanks for that suggestion, it sounds like exactly the right stuff:

Amazing GOOP

Uses: Attach loose auto trim and emblems

Another option used when I used to do wheels and tires back in the day, is RTV sealant. Definitely heat and oil resistant and easy to remove at a later point and then re-do. Always seemed to work well.
