So, driving home friday and something flys up my hood (looked like squashed soda can). Get home and the wife asks where my badge has gone.
Lukily it stopped down under the passenger wiper area and was still with me.
So anyway it looks like the factory double sided tape has gone brittle and then it has just let go. Any suggestions?
I could super glue, but that would suck if I decide to re-paint bonnet.
I could put alot of double sided foam tape under it.

Any Silastic-type of glue will stick the badge to your car, but still remain flexible enough for you to remove it, for example, by using fishing line.
