SS Bumper Inserts - Help!

I put mine on a few weeks ago, maybe a month, and every time I wash them I notice them popping in certain areas, off from the bumper, and not 100% stuck. Usually it pops away from the bumper at the bottom of the letter insert while the top holds fast. Has anyone had the same thing happen to them, or did I some how not get the process of peel and stick correct, in which I should be shot for.

Maybe the tape got dirty before sticking? Or maybe you didn't remove all the wax from the stick area before application?

Other than that, I can't think of what else it could be. You could pull them off, pick up some more 3 m tape, really ensure the wax is off, then re-apply them.

Re: SS Bumper Inserts - Help!

Never thought about the wax issue. The car was waxed before I bought it, more scratches turned up each day, man was smart enough to use the black wax. But if they get really bad I'll peel them off and work the possible wax off of that rear bumper.

Thanks for the tip PureVenom, I really appreciate it!
