I've done a few, and it's always a bit of a mess. What products/processes do you use to re-glue a Wurlitzer nameplate?

I've removed the old glue, which is the worst part.

You may want to consider using very thin two-sided tape.  The quality stuff is very strong, and thin enough as to be unnoticeable.
Something like this...

Contact cement- clean up excess with mineral spirits. Mineral spirits will not craze or melt the plastic.
