Attaching a radiator badge?

I had the radiator shell replated and the badge restored. The "ears" on the back of the badge are in bad shape and likely won't hold the badge in the hole in the shell. Can it be glued in? If so, what type of glue would I need? Any other ideas?

Hi Vince
I have used a two part epoxy resin adhesive , it comes in two small tubes , is inexpensive and available from most hardware stores . Once it sets it is as good as permanent
