I use clear silicone gel and 3M tape strips on mine. Just add a mound of gel in the ends and every 5 inches. Then tape it down overnight.

You made some good and valid points. Truthfully I don't think your heart was set on getting this GS400. You needed our approval on the exterior color and seem a little indecisive about owning one. ...
