I have an aftermarket Marshall style script logo, with no pegs, that I am attempting to attach to Tolex...
I tried using Scotch double sided tape....No go.
So I purchased some 3M VHB double sided tape....No go.
Seems sticky enough, but simply wont stay in place for very long.
Id like to clean the tolex, and try again, but Im afraid that chemicals would take the black pigment out of the tolex.
Suggestions?

I typically use a fine bead of clear silicone caulk. Same method Bad Cat uses to attach their lit name plates to their cabs.

Logos on these 2x10 cabs are old, recycled logos with the pins broken off.
Drilled tiny holes where the pins were and nailed them on with finish nails.
A dab of paint on a q-tip onto the nail head, and you'd never know from a foot away...
