4th gen script emblem for my grille

Hey guys, so i recently scored the rear Prelude script emblem from a 4th gen that i want to mount in my grille; however, i'm not really sure how i'm going to securely mount it. The emblem actually fits quite perfectly in the grille, and i was able to prop it in there for the pics.






^^^As you can see, i don't have a honeycomb grille or anything fancy like that. I'm also missing one of the plastic things that secures the grille to the frame (not sure where i'd get another, either).

The best idea i have right now would be to get some small mounting brackets and screw them into the grille, then securing the emblem with some gasket seal or epoxy. Other ideas on how to fasten it are much appreciated. Below are some more photos to give you an idea of what i'm working with.


^^^Here you can see the two tabs on the emblem are circled, and then notice how the top of the L in the emblem is flush with the top of the grille.

For those of you still reading:
Thoughts? Ideas? I can't decide if i like the Prelude and the H emblem both there. Should i keep both, or delete the H emblem?

If you are satisfied with the look - notch the slot in the grill for the two protruding nipples on the backside of the badge and epoxy it in place.
