Anyone have success getting the cap, emblem and retainer together?  I suppose I could drill and put in a rivet but I was hoping something like JB weld or the like.

What do you need a horn for.   After I've hit mine two or three times trying to find it's "sweet spot" the emergency has passed!

OK, here's an update. I couldn't find the glue gun so I started working on other small jobs on the car. Most of it became annoying so I started drinking. Reread this post and took Joel's advice and tried using the welder and now all I have left is a pile of ash... Not really, just a little joke...very little.
