Default what adhesive did Subaru use for the rubber molding on sideskirts?

I removed the rubber molding from some wrx sideskrits to paint them. I didn't tape off the gunky glue part so now I need to buy an adhesive similar to what was used to make them stay.

Question: Does anyone know what was originally used? If not, could you recommend something that is similar that will still make the rubber sit as flush as it was stock and not apepar as though its raised or coming off? Something from 3M im guessing..

Thanks guys.

If you can remove the glue and have the molding sit flush, once you put the sideskirt back on, the pressure will hold it. Adhesive glue is very messing/stringy. Do you know which one came of which side? I've put many on without adding more glue and they will stay. Occasionally I've had some where they didn't quite stay on the ends.

Default haha

mine came off with weather, so i just superglued it back on, it works great cause super glue doesn't really take up any space as an adhesive, its like water. At first i was worried it might like melt the rubber from crazy chemical reaction but, its worked fine.
