I think it would all depend on how clean you want it to look. But the RV stuff is where it's at.

Eternabond tape, some Sikaflex, Butyl seal tap is what i'd recommend.

yea its a little bulky, so i might use this as my justification to buy a 3d printer to make small more compact version of that one.


i need to do some measuring, but i think this will fit on my roof over the front seats where its flat. putting them on the hood while easier, is too overlander for me. only downside to it is that is never coming off based on talking to them without cracking cells. not stoked on that as at some point the tahoe will need paint, sooner than later.
