I, too, have a Legend with decals instead of badges. When I bought it, the previous owner had come up with some used badges, but then apparently realized they couldn't be attached. I have toyed with the idea of badges, and think that there are two options:
1 - buy a used tank with the mounting holes present, such as this example: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Triu...014QQitemZ330287957836QQrdZ1QQsspagenameZWDVW
2- Use black urethane adhesive available at body shops to glue them on. I'm not sure the nut and epoxy route mentioned in an earler post would work, because the castings have to lie flat to the tank, and you would not only have to use shorter screws, but also counterbore the backside of the casting to let them lie flat over the protruding nuts. (I hate it when my nuts protrude) Not sure if they are thick enough to allow this.
Yeah, I might be with Denny on this one - it could end up being a rarity. Dont go damaging the tank!
Either get a spare tank off fleaBay, or you can use 3M double stick body trim tape, which is used to attach body molding to many cars these days. You can get this tape at most any auto parts store. You can stick it on, and then remove later with minimal damage to your tank.
