Hey Everyone,

Has anyone recently installed the 04 Rear Valence Bumper Kit on their R? I was wondering what type of attachment tape to use. I see a lot of options, but none of them look strong enough to hold. Volvo's cost 21+ dollars. I am looking to pay less, if possible without sacrificing quality. :beer:

My understanding is that this tape is basically permanent:

This is very thin tape, though, so it may not match your application.
I used this stuff on my C70 side moldings and V70 broken side marker lights that would fall out of the fender. It is awesome, grips insanely hard. It's basically on there until you take it off. You could probably use it on a spoiler without the bolts.

This. I believe even Volvo's overcharged pricing for the attachment tape is 3M too.
Thanks, that's why I wanted to ask you guys. I wasn't expecting that kind of $$ for tape.

\Thanks again, :beer:
