Best glue for led strip??

Shouldn't we have a forum for the exterior of the rv? Any who, the led strip that runs up the front cap of my rig is peeling off. It's only the first 1/2" or so, but I want to fix it asap. Don't really want to dab silicone behind it and tape it down overnight. Any glue that will stick it to the fiberglass? I do plan on dabbing over the top of it with silicone once it's stuck down.

3M moulding tape... I will have to check the number on the stuff I have. But we use to adhere control panels in nuclear plants. IIRC it is 3M VHB, it comes in a variety of widths and can be cut down to fit. It is what I am using to adhere my LED's under my awning... when I get around to installing them.


There is madness to my methods

3M makes a "Plastic and Emblem Adhesive" part #08061. I've used it for many years for repairs. There's also a #03601, not sure what the difference is if any. Here's a copy & paste description from the Autozone site;
