How to install Nissan emblem to aftermarket grille?

How do I attach the front Nissan emblem (burger) to an aftermarket grill?? I have a 4 piece grille overlay from "Mr. Grille" on the way and it does not come with a cutout for the emblem. Do I use double faced tape or screws or what?? Here is a pic of the grille.......(sorry for the BIG pic)

Traded for 2006 Maxima in 5/06.....Titan's RULE!...(gas prices were killin' me)

C'mon............I have seen that some of you have done this. I just want to know how you did it (attached front emblem to an aftermarket grille).

They use double-sided tape. 3M sells one specifically for body moldings/emblems, you should be able to pick it up at any hardware stores. Make sure it's the foam kind, not the really thin scotch tape. BTW that's the best looking billet grill I've seen yet! Pricey?

I have been looking at grilles for a while now. I agree with you that this is the best looking one. It also happens to be one of the least expensive ones out there ($150 on ebay for the top 3 pieces AND the bottom piece too) .

It has a brushed aluminum finish so it is not polished or shiny. I like the "dull" finish because the stock chrome grille surround will still stand out from the new grille inserts.

What did you use? The foam double sided tape? Is that a "Mr. Grille" also?

No, I got the grille from the dealership, it was a FREEBEE! I got the tape from pepboys, it's the foam double sided tape made by 3m. I think, if I remember right, it only cost me 5 bucks. You have to cut the alignment posts off the back of the emblem, courtesy of a dremmel tool, put the new tape on and stick it down, that simple.

I like the look of this one too, but I think it attaches with zip ties.
