Afla 156 1.8 VELOCE, side skirts undone

I have tried all types of mastic, in order to fix the trims to the bottom sills. The trims really set this model off. Any other experiences with this problem.Apparently the original fixing clips were not up to the required strength. I live in South Gloucestershire, any help would be appreciated.Car running superbly!!

I used these. Been on a year now with no signs of coming apart.

Tiger Seal works well too. My local factors stock it (but Halfrods don't)

something like masterbond

Think a product used on Forum is Silko Silicon Mastic, the other Evo Bond which goes off very quickly. and your need a chisel and hammmer to detach gain if you have not lined up the skirt!!
