[TR] TR2/3 Badge fastening

As the badge is the same shape as the Standard-Triumph 'shell' that appeared
on Triumph Tens, I've used a craft knife + nail scissors to cut a piece of
flat rubber about 1/16th" thick to the outline of the badge. I've then
sandwiched it between panel and the back of the badge. If you then press on
the spring clips, the rubber removes sloppiness and the badge snugs down
sufficiently tightly to prevent water getting under the rubber. Didn't rattle,
didn't get stolen. Worked for me

>Hello List:
>Wondering what techniques listers have used to fasten the badges
(& letters) to the front clip and rear deck (TR2). I have used the pegs on the
backside of the badge and the "spring clips", but never really satisfied with
the fit. Also worried about how easy it would be to simply lift the badge off
the body.

about the consequences later.
