Default oh! so last night i'm washing my car, right..

and I Came to the front bumper, adn i saw this red crap, so i pulled on my black trim and part of it came off

i let out a string of every usual expletive.

then i was like :(

so tonight hopefully i'm gonna use some heavy duty household cement (like caulking) on the middle of the black trim piece on my bumper where the factory adhesive has worn off then i'm gonna let it sit for an hour or so and see how it holds up

Consider weatherstrip adhesive made for cars.

yeah, the 3M weatherstrip adhesive is some crazy stuff to work with but it sure holds nicely.

If you decide you just have to go with a common household adhesive, get something that is a 100% silicone adhesive. it'* what we used to mount ceramic fixtures when I did tile work. Once it'* stuck, it'* stuck! Which could be a bad thing if you get sloppy with it.

also, read the directions on it too, like the cure time... some things take 72 hours to cure 100%

Go back, get 3M super weatherstrip adhesive. The adhesive itself is yellow.

I used the glue.. WORKS GOOD

I had to use Isopropyl alcohol to prep the surrounding areas, and the old tape (which i left on since i didn't have anything to pull it off with (screwdriver, etc) and when i pulled it by finger, it wouldn't come free.

It'* back on the car, and it looks good
