Default Reattaching SLP Grille

So I'm reattaching my SLP grille and I want to know what is the best double sided tape to use? 3M? Gorilla tape? Something else?

Thanks.

3M is very user friendly, wheras Gorilla Tape is a PITA.

Gorilla "anything" is garbage in my opinion. The material its made of is good and strong but in my experience the "sticky" part of it just doesnt stick well.

3m would be my recommendation.. Unless you just wanna sell it, id pay a convincing price...

Look for wrecked Tony Stewart Editions, they came with these SLP type grilles. Scavenge the internet junk yards for a TS and you may get lucky. LKQ dismantlers keeps a pretty clear inventory. You may have to actually ask for the grille as they may not even know it is a hard to find item and it is still on the front bumper cover like a diamond in the dust.
