Use 3M plastic and emblem adhesive, krazy glue doesn't have any shear strength. Your A will fall off when you least expect it. This is the same reason you shouldn't use krazy glue for rear view mirrors.

on edit, that statement doesn't look right, but I'm not sure how to fix it...

Odd I've had my A kicked and chewed but it hasn't fallen off yet. Gives me something to look forward to.

That would create quite an embarrasing situation, no?

I think your "A" would be more prone to drooping than falling off. Is there any adhesive out there to rectify (possible pun intended) that ?

Can you get the A off? If not, maybe drill and pop-rivet.

Thank you for all of the advice; I think I will try the 3M plastic and emblem adhesive. I am trying to avoid any type of holes in the skin because somewhere I heard the whole thing (body & frame) are integral to keeping the trailer from sagging.
