Replacing letters on the car
I managed to powerwash my U & S from my focus . Glued the U back together so now I need to stick it back to the car. Has anyone done this before and can recommend some good double sided foam pads to use as I dont want to use flimsey sellotape ones that will come off the next time it rains.

I had a similar problem quite a few years back and got one of these: Halfords | Halfords Adhesive Pad, Heavy Duty
Just be prepared to write off a pair of scissors cutting it though as it was VERY sticky.

Epoxy Resin will make it stick nicely if you do both sides of the foam pad with it!

Looks like the one to try as I dont want to but anything on the paintwork. Thanks

someone little delight from work stole a letter of the badge on my car. I found a replacement on eBay for less than £10 but not applied it yet.

Did this with the MR2, and a previous Audi - just used sticky trim tape from Halfords. You cut it to length, and can cut it to shape so it doesn't show behind the letters. Made by 3M I think - still on there 2 years later after rain and shine.

Just De-Badge it :P (well just the letters, be foolish to take of the logo's )

I'd be tempted to go for an outdoor grade silicone as well.

Did this to my Astra..heh. 1.6? nah. Merely a Vauxhall Astra now. Ditto the "Club" badges, and the "Automatic". Tempted to change the Griffin for either the Holden Lion, or the Opel "strike".

or just buy a full new badge from local ford dealer they are usually <~£5 or try Discount Ford Parts - Genuine Ford Parts at FordPartsUK

Seems to be a bit of confusion in here now. I have not lost the badge, two letters came off which I still have I just want to stick the letters back on. Going to halfords later to try the double sided adhesive first and see how that goes.

i did this on a fiesta once - went to ford to buy the whole set
the lad stuck it on for me; the label already has the sticky side on already. he used some cleaner to clean the area and put back the missing letters
i know you dont need to whole label bit either way use some cleaner before you apply any letters back to the car
