Glue for emblems & badges

I need to glue some badges to grills.  New heritage style cloth, the plasticly kind.

 

I have some rubber cement, hot glue gun and Gorilla glue.  The Gorilla glue seems too strong but maybe not.  

 

What do I use? 

 

I used double-sided carpet tape. It has worked well.

I would use a good ceramic adhesive like Goop. Squirt some on a piece of cardboard and use a toothpick to spread it on the back of your emblem. Grill will have to be laying flat to do this.

Hmmm, out of what I have on hand, I guess the Gorila Glue.  It seems like a permanent glue is a bad idea in case the grill cloth is ever damaged.  I want to be able to remove the emblems and use them again.  I should have some RTV or silicone. 

 

Maybe some painter's latex caulk.  I love that stuff.  Really tough but you can break the seal if need be.  My friend who owns a granite business told me to use this to install sinks.  I was going to use silicone but he said that if I ever needed to replace the sink, I would destroy the granite.  He was right, the plain old caulk was really difficult to remove, but  doable without destroying the counters.

Is this the stuff?  This is foam and looks thick.

 the correct tape is the  "  thin '   type   ,   the  Pie badges from  klipsch used  this 2x sided tape .

Thanks.  I ordered the 300LSE.  One seller on Amazon had a 40% coupon. 

 

My grill cloth is plastic.  How to I prep this?  I will lightly sand the backs of the aluminum badges, but I do not want to put thinner or acetone on the grill cloth.  If need be I can test a solvent on a scrap as I have a big roll of the cloth.

The grille cloth is  either Nylon  or plastic  , I would  try alcohol instead of diluted  solvent   , heat up with a hair dryer and apply asap
