VW Logo on the engine cover.
« on: June 16, 2003, 10:58:50 PM »
On Friday I was washing the engine bay and the VW logo came off.  It came off cleanly and nothing was broken.  But since they have disappeared from a few of our covers.  Is there anything I can use to glue it down with.  I was thinking J.B. Weld, but I am not sure of the heat resistance.  Does anyone have any ideas as far as an adhesive that can take high heat?
If it ain't broke, take it apart and fix it!

JB Weld can handle the heat, so to speak.  That seems a little over doing it.  I would use epoxy, you can get a dual tube epoxy kit for cheap.  You basically squeeze both tubes togeter stir and apply, just dont get it on anything else.

Also make sure your engine cover is cool and don't drive for a few hours or so.

That would be my input.  Ot payt he $12 at the dealer every time you lose it ;)

Thanks, I realize the JB would be overkill but at least I will not ever have to worry about it again.  I have used epoxy before but I was not sure about the heat.
