Question Best glue to use for emblems?

In your experience what do you think is the best glue to use when putting new emblems on the car.( Its the SC300 emblem and the Lexus emblem. )Thanks.

I know Gorilla glue expands, I dont think that would be the best.

I just used the 3M emblem glue you can buy at autozone. Just be cautious, that stuff can get messy.

dont use glue! just use 3m weather resistant tape [double sided] its a gray color is like a foam materia. you can get it at homedepot in the paint section where all the masking tape is.

I think they the 3M automotive double sided tape. It has to say automotive on the package. I believe Home depot has it. Its the same 3M they use for Body kits.

Yes double sided tape cut to size is the best alternative. Thanks everyone.

3M double sided outdoor tape. Its a gray tape with red peel away plastic... It works great, Ive had it on all my cars emblems after painting, also used it to hold the sc4 lip on my 95 front bumper, I scraped all the time and it never came off
