what do I use to reattach fender well flares?

While washing the rig I noticed that two of the fender well lips or flares were not attached all the way around. Was wondering what folks use to re-adhere them.

They usually use screws or nuts and bolts in the wheel well under the lip or double sided tape tp adhere them.

Times 2. Just make sure you use alcohol swabs to clean both surfaces before you use the tape.

I LOVE duct tape. It is the bacon equivalent in the tool world: it makes everything better!

I think I'll go with the 3m double-sided tape this time, though. Do I use any clear silicone around the edge,too to prevent water intrusion?

I actually didn't feel any screws around the inside - I think they're totally glued on. I'll double-check when I do the repair.
