Putting on Bird decals?

So what would be the best substance to use in sticking my chrome T-Bird decal back on my tail light?

I tried to use 5-Minute Epoxy all it did was leave a sticky mess to clean up. Didn't hold at all. It was supposed to adhere to plastic surfaces too..

Thanks

try 3m double sided tape, it kinda like a thick foam tape, it meant for emblems and trim. it holds my body side moldings on my TC with no problems

Yeah the side moldings it will work good..

But it will stick out if I use that double sided tape..

Not good

They also make a very thin (almost like regular scotch tape) double sided product that works well if both surfaces are flat. I'm pretty sure 3M has it.

I stuck my Turbo Coupe emblems on the 3M double sided tape and traced around it with an exacto knife. After I pulled the excess tape off, I went around the whole thing with a sharpie so you couldn't see any white. Looks factory.
