    Got the same badges coming for my Challenger. I agree they should be putting these on in the factory.

    Got them off Amazon! And the one for the front grill is a pain in the ass. You are going to have a tough time getting behind the grill. I tried everything and couldn't fit my arm in to reach it. So I modded the threads to work like the push pins that the original use. I then used double sided tape. It is on there good.

    It just pulls off. And the new one I had to mod because your not getting behind the grill. Made the threads up like the push pins off the stock one and used double sided tape on the flat edges. It worked great. I wish I would have done that first instead of tearing the car apart trying to get behind it.

    Wow and I thought it was just me. Now... I decided to try double sided tape as well but....
    Instead of the nuts you could use vacuum line. A small section, stick it to a finger, get it on the end of the threaded rod and then push it till it is tight. I have that as a backup plane if the double sided tape doesn't work.

    The other option would be to dremel the original SRT snap in the grill badge so it serves as a base plate to afix the cat to and then snap it back in. That is my backup to my backup.

    Tried both, no luck, with the extra added weight etc. of the original snap plate bolted to the new badge wont hold it in place. BUT I came up with a solution; I took 3 zip ties and put them between the new badge and the bolt on backing plate, then tightened down the backing plate on top of the zip ties, next I fished the zip ties (by the way I used 14" long zip ties to make it easy to maneuver them in and back out the grill) through the grill and back out, lastly I used a pair of forceps to finish tightening the zip ties so that the ends would end up inside the grill and behind the new badge so you can't see them. Finished product is rock solid (it moves the grill when you wiggle the badge) and unless you get down on the ground with a flash light and look inside the grill you cannot tell the zip ties are even there.

    I am at work now but when I get home later I will snap some pics and post them here.

    Oh and just an FYI to get behind the grill on these cars you have to remove the entire front fascia so that is why I came up with my method. :cool:
