What Type of Adhesive?

I had my "eyebrow" or "banner" tinted and the shop that did it had to pry off the auto light/wiper sensor. He said just to use some epoxy or any clear adhesive to put it back on. My quesion, does this need to be anything special? What did you guys use?

Re: What Type of Adhesive?

Re: What Type of Adhesive?

I was looking at it, it looks like the "snot" that comes on some of the letters you get in the mail. More like a thicker glue. Rubber cement kind of? hard to explain... the local dealer didn't have any idea and thinks that if i bought a new module it would come preapplied... lol for 100 bucks i'll try some first.

Re: What Type of Adhesive?

because it is not something that can be reinstalled, you have to buy a new one from the dealer.

Also had to wait for the tint to cure.. but they don't sell the adhesive? Does the new module come with it already on it?

Re: What Type of Adhesive?

Tint shop should have just cut neatly around it.
I instructed them to do that on mine.

Sorry I can't help with the adhesive issue
