Default What's the best velcro

I'm just getting som body shells sprayed up but want to know what's the best Velcro. Seems simple but some of the stuff you get wouldn't stick on glue!

So, what's really sticky and where do you get it from 😎👍

Halfords works well, still using the same for 5 years on my Lazer.

If you heat the glue side up with a hairdryer before applying to the shell it will stick great, been doing this for a few years now & never had any come off

get the branded 3m stuff called "Velcro", just make sure you use a good cleaner before applying and leave it overnight, bought mine from the sewing shop £2.50 for a 25mm strip 1m long. Preparation is the key

That is the stuff I use. I bought 1m for £6 from Boyes. Very, very strong adhesive. The Velcro strength is insane. I like that the hook side is smooth to the touch.
