Default I need strong 2x sided tape!

So I need to really strong double sided tape for my rear oem lip and my Defi control unit. For some reason the stuff I had is too weak. Who makes extremely strong double sided tape and where can I get it?

3M makes this white double sided adhesive that used for hanging stuff on walls. You can find it at places like Home Depot or Lowes. I friend from work used it to hang his phone on the wall and when he went to remove it a piece of the drywall with it.

I have the red kind from 3M, when you are using these tapes be sure to use rubbing alcohol to get that grease out if you dont they will not stick!

Yeah 3m's super strong outdoor stuff (gray tape w/ red plastic peel-off part, smells like starfruit) is insanely strong, especially after it has been stuck to something for a while. You can find it at Home Depot...

Go to a hobby store and ask for servo tape. That ish is strong. Usually it's about 1/16" or 3/32" thick foam.

If you're in the South Bay, try Sheldon's hobbies on Oakland Road Just south of Montague.

I don't know which brand is strongest, but I bet the guy behind the counter does.

Yes, always clean the surfaces with alcohol. I use denatured alcohol (ethanol), but rubbing alcohol (isopropanol) works too.
