plastic strip?

hey

I have to stick the grey plastic strip that sits behind the side indicators on the front guards back on.. its only a small piece and i was wondering if anyone knew what would be a good glue to stick it on with? i know originally they use that double sided tape stuff but im assuming you cant buy small sections like i need.. any ideas?

thanks

Re: plastic strip?

i'm sure you could get a small role of double sided tape, and cut it to size.

Re: plastic strip?

The double sided tape is only about $7. Just means youll have an extra 9.9 metres to spare

Re: plastic strip?

Double sided tape is the best option imo. Can be removed with relitive ease if needs be in the future.
go to super cheap, i think its like $8 for 12 meters. So pretty cheap.
