Hey All,

I just got my tour pack and primered lower fairings back from the paint shop and I gotta say "WOW!" The did a great job.

I had to disassemble the tour pack to get it ready for paint. In this process I had to pull the sticker of of the tour pack lid (It says "classic" ) The sticker came off nice and now that I have the tour pack back from paint I called the Harley shop to see what my options were for a new sticker. Well, I have several choices but they all range around $30.00 per measly sticker.

I'd like to just glue the "classic" sticker back on but I don't have any glue except Elmers at the house.

Any suggestions on a glue to use? The sticker is a metallic type sticker and I will be applying it right back where it was on the new paint.


Thanks in advance!

If its thin metal, you can use contact cement. I had to use that on my tank console... that piece that goes around the ignition switch, as it was coming loose when I bought it and got tired of waiting for the shop to get the new sticker on warranty. If its a thicker metal, try using silicone adhesive.

Contact cement would be hard to put on thin, many auto parts houses will have some spray adhesive, 3M I think, it might say upholstery and trim adhesive.

It's paper thin metal film. Contact cement would work with a thicker piece I think but the spray adhesive may be the ticket. I'll check the Advance Auto Pep Napa Zone today.

Thanks for all the input. I'll post progress and pics afterwards

Went and purchased some Permatex spray adhesive for 5 bucks. One shot of the sticky stuff on the back of the sitcker and VIOLA!

Thanks for the suggestions and help; I think it turned out pretty good
