    Unhappy Need advice: kneepad adhesive

    Looking for reccs on replacing adhesive on a (left) kneepad....starting to separate from Tupperware....right side no issue (yet). The attachment edge is quite narrow, so adhesive is gonna have to be significant.....ideas????

    For the engine badges on Airheads, I've used Permatex Super Weatherstrip Adhesive. I believe it comes in yellow (aka Gorilla Snot) and likely black. Follow directions and it should work a peach.

    Thanks for posting this. I'm having the same issue on my bike. The right side knee pad is beginning to lift at the top corner and I want to address the issue before it gets any worse.

    . It's safe for plastics?

    3M molding tape will probably work.
    You can find it at most auto parts stores.
