    Just going to throw this out there for anyone using tape/velcro to attach things.Plastic parts (especially raw plastics like the inside of a tour pack) contain mold release agents.Although you can't see them these chemicals breath through the pours of unfinished plastic parts and make tape applications near impossible. Years ago we where having trouble getting body moldings to stick to cars after being painted.We would do our best, the car would leave only to return some weeks later with the mouldings falling off.

    3m came up with the solution.Adhesive wipes specifically designed to help tape stick to plastics.Product number 06396.

    I'm no scientist and won't pretend to know why it works.I will say that overnight our molding problems where cured.Having trouble getting that radar detector to stick to your dash.Use these wipes and your only issue will be removing the tape.
