    Superglue works well.

      LePage contact cement works well for me (the yellow one, not the clear one)

        Epoxy glue has never failed me. Just ensure you're gluing to more than paint, make sure it bonds to the metal or fibreglass underneath.

            I have used automotive weather strip adhesive. It comes either in yellow or black. I like black when I can find it. Either works well.

                This stuff came with my Alaska Bushwheel Tires. Used to glue the letters to the sidewalls. I've been using it to glue rubber channels to AL edges, similar to what you are wanting to do. So far it works great!
