I just want to keep the air clear here.  I am not advocating using the
strip calk for an adhesive.  Use a real adhesive for that.  I just
happened to try it and it worked for now, in a couple of casual
locations.  I would never even try to use it on $400 worth of side

PS, I like it for logos 'cause it squishes almost flat.  Foam tape often
has a thickness to it that makes it a poor choice for attaching external
bitties to a car.  Anyway the foam tears even if the glue holds.

But maybe Walmart will pick up the strip calk and sell it real cheap!
