Re: I need some Glue

If they are off, I think you’ll find a double-sided tape to put them back on with. There should be a tape on the back of the trim piece or got left on the body when the trim came loose. Remove the old, install the new on the back of the trim piece and apply.

Otherwise there is Goop available at hardware stores. It comes in several formulas, you’ll need the one for automotive trim.

Re: I need some Glue

There are several choices, but IMHO, use a 3M Automotive product. You can either buy a trim adhesive or a double backed sticky tape. Either are exactly what you'd need. I'd prefer the sticky backed tape... it's aggressive and works quite well.



This stuff hold panels onto vehicles, it's like welding:

Thanks for the input, that was just the info I am looking for. Two sided tape never even crossed my mind, but makes total sence. I like the idea of no messy gule to drop on the paint. I will start looking around for some tape.

Re: I need some Glue

Just remember to clean both the body panel AND the molding thouroughly with alcohol before peeling the tape. If you dont it wont stick permanantly.

Re: I need some Glue

The world progresses. Evolves. Advances. The name of the seventh planet used to be pronounced like one's posterior possesion. That has changed. The syllable accent has moved. See attachment. Ahh the joys of turning 16. Had my own car. I could buy my own model glue without a note from my mommy. Alas I actually did use it for building models. I once sat for too many hours over my many models in different stages of construction. I got sick and had to go to the doctor. And who'd a thought that now-a-days they'd have a name like huffing? sorry..........
