  2. rubber to plastic adhesive suggestions?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Need to stick a rubber strip to a plastic trim. I used sikaflex on sideskirts - which was great but trying to 'handle' that stuff on a delicate piece of trim would be difficult (plus I dont want to spend on a new tube of sika for 5ml of glue. I've tried superglue - but it goes brittle. Would...
