Has anyone else had this happen?
I installed the self-adhesive grille strips from Coastal Metals this summer. All was fine and dandy until October/November when the edges started coming un-glued. I've tried other adhesives (3M spray glue, and some automotive trim glue from Wal-Mart). They all last until it rains (which is like every 3 days here).
Before I Epoxy the living sh*t out of the strips and permanently fix them to the grille, I was wondering if there is something else I should try.

Thanks!

Good suggestion. I just ran home at lunch and tried the cable tie suggestion. It works, but looks kinda ghetto. I can't see it from far away, but up close, it's quite visable.

Hmmm.

Study -
I picked up some silicone-based adhesive, and applied it this morning. Holding it tight with cable ties for the next 12 hours or so. I'll let you know how it works.

Thanks!

Have check out this site? There is a 'how-to' called tricked out grille on that site. :smiley69:

I have had the Chrome grille strips on since 11/02, I hot glued the underside about every 4 inchs. If you do not use something when the sun heats them up they will come lose.

That's an excellent suggestion. I like the added insurance the glue gun could provide!
