You can just eliminate it as well.

just try the superglue again.. just make sure where you're applying is absolutely clean.. then dab some glue spot by spot, slowly.. it should be ok

It looks just as good if not better. I have done it before with good success...

mines not glued. and wasnt from factory..

i took mine off when i painted my side skirts.. and then put it back on when i was done, no issues.. i dont see why you'd need glue when it doesnt even come that way from factory?

they did come that way from the factory.. not glue though but the stuff on the sticky side of tape is.. it's just not noticeable coz it's not that sticky loses adhesiveness really quickly once it's taken off

yea i tried sticking it back on but it doesnt hold in place. if you swing the sideskirt it just falls right out. also if you nudge it a bit it tends to move out of place.

How about Epoxy or JB Weld, if you're really serious about it not coming off.

I just had some collision work done and the rubber piece on the front splitters (STi) was pulled off by the body shop. I was able to clean the area really well and apply a small bead of weatherstrip adhesive to the inside. This seems to have worked well. I just wiped any excess off of the visible areas and it turned out great. Also not to be OT but I found rubbing alcohol and a scotch brite no-scrub scrubbing pad/sponge (blue ones) seemed to get the rubber clean fairly easy.

i never really thought it'd really fall off after putting it back on=/

i've taken mine off and put 'em on another set of sideskirts and they held up fine.. just maee sure it's completely on straight before putting the clips back on the bottom
