    I've often been asked, "What do you old folks do now that you're retired?
    Well, I'm fortunate to have a chemical engineering background, one of the things I enjoy most is turning beer, wine, Scotch and margaritas into urine.

    Life's good, live it.

    Ditto though when you wash the car the tape retains water so is a bugger to leather off after!

    I've glued them on using Tiger Seal in the past. Mark out where you want the badges to go with tape, gun the glue/sealer on the back and hold in position with tape until set. This method gives you time to move the badge to perfection, doesn't allow any water to get behind and as yet hasn't deteriorated. Any excess of sealant can be wiped off with spirit. It works for me!

    I used translucent silicone sealer under mine and taped them in place until dry.

    I'm hoping that silicone remover will get them off if I ever need too.

    Silicone & car bodywork should never mix! It's a ba***rd to remove if you have to repaint at any time, much better to use Sikaflex or Tiger seal or any other automotive related product!
