Household "GOOP" adhesive works very well for adhering automotive trim pieces and it dries clear.
Automotive "GOOP" is also available, but I don't think there is any difference from the household "GOOP" other than the price.

I"m too late but throwing 2 cents in because I feel good someone mentioned using the "Goop". that is what I used to reattach mine yesterday. description on the 3M tube looks very similiar to Goop.

All the above sound like good/great adhesives, the only thing I would do in addition is to scuff up the back of emblem and mating surface of the "badge holder".

I'd use a medium grade of sandpaper, like 220 grit.

This gives the "glue" a little more bite to grip with.

I have had very good luck utilizing the double sided 3M trim tape for emblems. So far more than five years with zero issues. That is how the original emblems and letters were attached and some of mine were installed for more than 20 years until they were removed for paint and/or restoration.

45 years ago we were used 3M emblem & trim adhesive, never had any problem with it. The produce has stood the test of time.

Double sided 3M trim tape for emblems is more than enough. You don't want something too hard as sooner than later you may need to put a new one to keep looking nice. After 5 yrs I needed a new one for the new paint job and the 3m was easy to remove.

Hmmm, I was able to take the whole emblem off the car today (I noticed it was loose) - What should I use to reattach the emblem?

(The center peg was cracked off, but the side peg is still there)


Thanks

edit: I used a two-part epoxy, that should do it...
