just as others have told you in the Facebook groups, the 3M tape works.

Don't under estimate 3M tape. Your car will fall apart before that tape gives up the hold.

Good luck. I bought a fiberglass PVO style spoiler for my SRT-4 back in like 2010. I even had a shop professionally install it and paint it to the car. (I was lazy) Well...the tape did not want to adhere to the back of the fiberglass and it would slightly stick up on the corners of the decklid and look horrible IMO close up. Ended up selling it. Either get it molded or use something stronger and more permanent. I love the look of the PVO style spoiler on a wingless car. Looks soooooo good. Would love to go that route again if I knew of someone with a fiberglass piece that fits perfect.

Sounds like it might have been something with that specific fiberglass piece. The molded plastic and carbon fiber finished with a clean resin usually adheres very well. If the underside mounting points are rough then the double-sided tape probably won't work.

Just as another example, many of the heavy plastic body side moldings on older Pontiacs and even a lot of Chrysler products used a lot of 3M double-sided tape from the factory, often combined with a few trim clips. If it's good enough for original equipment manufactured (OEM) use, it's probably good enough for aftermarket use, but will depend on the surface prep of what you're trying to attach.
