I know this has been covered before, but I can't find the thread.

Anyone know of a decent double sided tape for the body side mouldings?

I tried Cling brand from Repco Auto Parts, I cleaned the areas with K&H Wax and Grease remover and they started lifting after a few days.

theres a 3m one with red backing, strong as. It is quite expensive but well worth it, after 12-24 hours you got bugger all chance of removing it

Sikaflex no good for you? It won't come off in a hurry.

Actually I forgot about Sikaflex - I love that stuff! I already bought the 3M stuff, but if it even starts to look like it's lifting she'll be getting Sikad!
