Default Which 3m VHB tape for polyurethane rear aprons?

I'm in the process of installing rear aprons on my car. I am just looking for the best 3m vhb tape. I can't decide on the multipurpose:

This multipurpose tape is highly conformable and ideal for bonding most plastics. It bonds to plasticized vinyl as well as to steel, aluminum, glass, and other hard-to-bond materials such as ABS, rigid vinyl, nylon, and enamel and epoxy paint surfaces

Or the Tape for Hard to Bond Surfaces:

Use for bonding to powder-coated surfaces, polypropylene, polystyrene, steel, aluminum, and glass. Also great for bonding to ABS, rigid vinyl, nylon, and enamel and epoxy paint surfaces.

Any advice? Thanks!

You want the hard to bond to surfaces. Those tapes typically have a coating that fights plasticizers. The rolls come in 36 and 72 Yards so you may want to request a sample from an automotive aftermarket 3M sales rep in your area!
