Emblem trouble on my 1981 Cheyenne

I was passed down this 1981 Cheyenne by my grandfather last year and have been working on it for awhile. There was a large crack on the drivers side exterior emblem since I got it, but I hadn't had the time to fix it yet. Today after coming home from work I noticed that the emblem has split into two entirely separate pieces. Unfortunately I can't find this emblem for sale anywhere, so buying a replacement isn't an option. Anybody know a good fix for this?

Wow! You have a rare truck. 81 was the only year for those emblems. Cheyenne was the trim package between Scottsdale and Silverado. GM dropped Cheyenne after 81. I actually have a set of Cheyenne 10 fender emblems that came off a wreck that I bought.

Your right, Finding a set of 81 Cheyenne emblems is harder than finding a crack free dash pad.

Classic Industries is now making the reproduction Cheyenne emblems. They're pricey ($70 each), but the look great in the pictures. Here's the link to them:
