I have just bought this stuff to attach a headlight protector as I didn't trust the type supplied.The panels are going to be powder coated with a 'textured' black, and I'll find a way of sticking the badge back on - I'll see if I can stick double sided tape such as that used to stick number plates, but need to find out if I can stick it directly onto what's left or whether I have to try and remove it all (that won't be easy!).
Will update with pics when it's done
Worth you considering and would make the side panels easier to remove next time round, maybe sooner than you hope.
It comes in different strengths and shapes, white or black. I bought strips but round pads are available.
