Quoting coyotes: someone should replicate these and make a killing. such a huge waste of money
I mentioned that in Paulo's thread lol. He said that he used to make AMG replica side skirts, I told him as long as they weren't ridiculously priced like the OEM ones, I'd be all over a set. I don't mean the AMG prices are ridiculous considering how rare they are, I just can't ever see myself paying 6k+ for show.

Come on Mike, with all the fabrication you have done to the car it would be relatively simple to make up a tiny bracket to hold the badge in place. Or just put some mesh on the inside and attach it to that. If I recall the 'template' for the mesh is almost identical for all the grilles and it can be fastened securely to the rear with screws. If that particular one doesn't have provisions for that just locate some suitable points, cut the mesh to cover those areas and drill some guiding holes for the screws.
Pretty much what I did when replacing the mesh on my AMG grille using the OEM screw locations.
Getting old sucks ... but it sure beats the alternative !!!
