3M tape for hood scoops?

Hi folks,

Does anyone have experience with hood scoops that stick on with just 3M tape? Will this hold ok when going 80MPH? I'm looking to add a gt500 spoiler and hood scoop and this user on ebay sells painted stuff to match your codes. Has anyone done business with them?


The prices look good but I'm a bit worried about all these mods that use 3M tape. Does it hold? Can you get it off later if need be without damaging the paint?

No need to worry about the tape. A long as you clean the surface that you are working on, it will hold. Removal is pretty easy also, just need some heat.

I had a stick on for a year. It took all my strength to get it off.
