How would you reattach this trim strip?

While working on the wheel skirt I ran into this problem. How would *you* reattach this? There is quite a bit of hardened adhesive on the backside of the strip. What would you recommend to properly prep the area? What adhesive would you use to reattach the trim?

A body shop would use double sided adhesive tape. Comes in different widths, or you can trim to fit. easy peasy!

I'd Epoxy Shutter machine screws to the trim drill holes and attach with lock washers and nuts.

The double sided tape will work but not the kind you buy at the store. 3M make a very strong double sided tape that is used on body trim in the car industry. http://www.autogeek.net/3m-auto-tape.html

Someone said that the trim was supposed to be installed with clips. There is no evidence that any clips had ever been installed, just holes drilled for them. I have to dig out the old epoxy that was used originally and measure the rail channel to see if there are shutter screws to fit. I'll also stop by Aubrey's on Monday since we're on our way to Boise and see if they have the clips. Thanks for the help everyone.

I'd probably start with a dremel to remove the remains of the old adhesive from the from the trim piece and body. After that, I guess you could use the two side tape people are referring to or construction adhesive or some form of epoxy.

Body shops use a 4" dia. 3/4" wide, eraser like material, wheel on a drill to get that old stuff off.

I'm with Sirpurrsival (must have a cat) and use a good construction adhesive.

I would speak with a RV Collision repairman and get the proper adhesive and instructions how to use it. Not doing this can result in loosing the panel on the roadway and paying more later for a replacement.

It took me a while to see where you were talking about. I used to have a lot of problems with this panel getting hung up on the Smart-Beds and have had had it apart. Long time ago but I think it had clips like those that attach the trim all way around the coach. Never trusted those clips. Once lost 15' of trim aft of the passenger side wheel aft somewhere in New Mexico.

That's the one, Basil. The only trim piece that hangs up on the Smart Bed is the one on the dining room slide so we have to make sure to raise that one up just a tinch. Thanks for your continued support of WRV Alpine owners with your experience.
