[Vwdiesel] shower curtains

I used heavy visqueen (from the hardware store) and glued in on with
clear silicon adhesive.  I just ran a bead around the door where I
wanted the plastic to stick. It hasn't fallen off yet- about 3 years.

Two solutions -

1. On my old '85, I got tired of this same problem, and ended up tucking
the bottom 
1-2" of the plastic *inside* the door frame, and taping it there. This
meant even if it 
came undone, the water would still run down inside the door and drain
out the way it 
should. It seemed to work fine for several years.

2. You could try one of two things that I've thought of, but never
actually tried - 
mactac double sided tape, or the black sticky goo that is used to stick
plastic vapour 
barrier to just about anything in a new house. Comes in a caulking tube,
and is 
incredibly sticky, like nothing else I've seen before. Imagine a mixture
of tree sap and 
roofing tar...
