    Tiger seal or Stikaflex might be a better option than the foam pads

    Should the fin not be clipped on like the rest of the skirt? You can still get the clips from Vauxhall I believe.

    Bottom part of the finn is clips , down the angled part is the sticky tape/pads . Really wanted to try and avoid the tiger seal route if I could . Ive got an idea when I had the skirts painted the have warped out of shape , as the drivers side one was a pig to get back on

    Tigerseal is great, held mine on fine.

    Now I have the two bolts drilled through the lip and don't have any double sided or glue up the front lip and it is held in tight with no gaps.

    Numer plate pads are usually pretty sticky, maybe find some decent 3M ones on eBay.

    Well I found some more tape on line which is surposed to be better . Had the skirts off yesterday and after being on the nova for 5 months they seem to have gone back into shape as with the better tape the have gone back on much better. Time will tell if they stay where they should
