I've had two unsuccessful attempts at installing my roof spoiler. The first time it only stuck for a day before it started peeling up, the second attempt lasted about two weeks and it eventually came loose again. I've used the expensive 3M tape everyone recommends, the adhesive promoters, hell the last time I used marine grade lock-tight to glue the ends to the glass and it didn't work.

I hope someone can shed some light here for me too. Best I can figure is the humidity is just too high this time of year for the adhesives to bond well in the south.

Humidity is probably the culprit, but were you using the highest psi 3M tape?

I ordered the 3M 06384 Automotive Acrylic Plus Tape which seems to be what everyone on the forum recommends. The last time I ran a bead of the lock-tite down the center of the tape around the ends, attached it to the glass, and set a bag of potting soil on it for two days to give it some weight to encourage it to stick. Still no luck.

I saw someone the other day driving by that had one on a silver IS and I almost hunted them down to ask how they got their's to stick.
