What adhesive for rear bumper seal?

I've found a few different adhesives here on PelicanParts, but I'm not sure which would be best for the rear bumper seal that goes underneath the reflector on impact bumper cars. I realize it's a high temp area.

Suggestions?

It isn't, it is held down by the bolts and a screw behind the decorative rubber button into the bumper then the tip is held in place by the bumperettes, if you need to work on the bumper or impact struts, it will be a mess to remove the adhesive.

Other threads spoke of an adhesive that attaches it to the car, not the bumper.

Really, strange, it really does not need it. I guess if you removed the bumperettes, then you need something to hold the end onto the bumper? Strange

You're referring to the seal that goes between the horizontal topside of the bumper and the bottom of the rear Porsche reflector, yes?

If you buy a new replacement seal, it's got a peel-and-stick adhesive attached which sticks to the body trim underneath the reflector panel. For the curved sections that wrap around underneath the tail light clusters, I just used some quick dry crazy glue. Just finished this a couple weeks ago, but holding up well so far.

Did you use the seal that's for sale here on Pelican?

If you are re-using a seal, or the new seal comes without adhesive pre applied, I would use 3M Black Super Weatherstip adhesive.

Apply to both surfaces and let it flash off before you press the two surfaces together.

Should be fine once bonded and sandwiched between bumper and rear apron.

Im replacing this piece at the moment but mine looks too long it looks like it is supposed to finish in the groove at the bottom of the tail light housing recess mines a little longer than that can you show me a pic of yours in place to see if Im doing it wrong?. Its the same length on both sides and is a genuine part so Im a little confused.
