I was just given a slightly used 50th Anniversary Billet exhaust plate. This piece is sweet. I just removed the tape from the back side with a razor blade and polished the front with Never Dull. Which double sided tape should I buy to affix this thing.
I picked up Scotch (3M) heavy duty double sided foam tape. Can anybody confirm that this is the correct product I should be using. The tape that was previously on the exhaust plate seemed to be more of a transparent glue type substance. Can anybody confirm that what I purchased will be sufficient. I would like to get this thing hung on the Z this afternoon.
The 3M dual sided tape I am familiar with is specifically labeled for auto trim application and is avail. in just about any auto parts store not sure about it's availability in home improvement stores like Home Depot. I think it sells for $5 for small roll.
It's as you and others have described grey, foam-like, and has red vinyl backing.
You need 3M acrylic tape. They have called it red liner in the trades for years ( parts counter guy should understand this term ) used for mounting body side moldings and it is gray, Don't use foam. Clean surfaces with rubbing alcohol it's an OK substitute for promoting the adhesive.
