Thanks! Yeah, I was considering this, but wasnít sure there would be enough surface area on the Beetle grille to mount it properly.

Whatís the thinnest tape 3M makes? Iíve found the 1.1 mm, but it seems thicker than modern emblem applications.

Seems like your club would have some ideas. Iíd probably use some earth magnets .

I want to mount my auto club badge on the rear grille, but I canít figure how. Can you reach the backside of the grille somehow, or do you have a trick for how to get a bracket and mounting nuts behind there?
