    Default Re-badging the Vectra?

    Possibly because I'm an awkward sod, I'm going against the grain and sticking my boot Griffin badge back-on! I guess I just like changing things...

    I've managed to find the badge, but I'm not sure what glue to use.

    Anybody know for sure?

    I think it looks like some kind of silicone sealant type stuff, but don't want to get the wrong thing and end up with the badge dropping off and ruining the paintwork...

    Any help much appreciated!

    Ta!

    Probably is when you pay £15 for a new one, this is my old one that I took off not more than a year ago!

    You need double sided trim tape - and cut to size as required. Available from Halfords etc.

    Clear off the old trim / glue off the badge and replace with the new tape. Will be a fiddly job however if you must............

    Needs a sharp craft knife to do.

    Probably just about to remove mine....

    Steve-o Pm sent!

    Steve CDTI - I tried the trim tape, it was just never going to work around the fine details of the Griffin, just couldn't get the craft knife in close enough...it seemed like it could work, but didn't quite...
