yeah permanently would be glue

or get the stronger 3M tape


clean the headlamp with a prep pad
then affix the 3M tape with the brow

Then take the blue painters tape and tape them down for about 30 mins to get a good fix


(tape will not leave a residue or pull paint)

its all in the prep people


clean the surface with the swap (alcohol pad)

then dry
then apply brows

Then press hard
then affix blue painters tape from above to secure to the car


wait 20-30

take off tape

walla !

3m double sided tape.


the 5lbs resistence one.

it will be a red color.

those things are meant to be "permanent" as it says on the box.

it really works though and it even held up my trd spoiler.

Hirun is right. Please don't be going to CVS and buying their double sided tape. Use the red backed, gray tape.
