You should be able to pick up the 3m red tape at autozone/pepboys.

You could also try automotive grade RTV. I like to use RTV because you could get the badges very close to the car body/grille.

Lazy me would just buy a new emblem... also because they do a nicer job applying it.

About to order the F Sport grille off Sewell as well. Do they sell the Lexus emblem there too? All I saw was the black pearl and chrome kit which I'm not interested in. I couldn't find it on the website for some reason.

That's what I did as well. It was the only thing I had around at the time.
