Hood Scoop Falling Off

Hey guys my hood scoop is starting to peel off in the front of it.. It's the stock scoop so I don't think it can be drilled on right? I think that they are just taped or glued on. What do you guys recommend to secure it back on? I think the glue probably was loose from the heat and driving down the highway I could see it was about to fly of so I had to stop. I guess I was going to too fast and had "Danger to Manifold" all you fast an furious fans out there will get that haha.

it should have seven bolts with nuts that hold it on. My 2003 gt does. I just painted it and took it off. You have to remove the heat shield from under neath the hood to get to them.

So would I just need to secure the part that has come off with some adesive tape? Am's hood scoop they sell is taped on with 3m tape and adhesive pad. So should I go buy some and do that on the part that came loose?

I took the heat shield off, took the whole scoop off and found out one of the "screw clamps" was broken. I jd welded it and put it back in place and put the scoop back on and has been fine ever since. I thought these things were glued or taped on. AM sells a glued version so i guess ivwas just assuming haha. Thanks guys!

I recently bought the one from AM. It uses several bolts and 3m tape.

Do you use the 4m tape to attach the scoop directly to the hood? Or does it hold the "weatherstripping looking stuff together if that makes sence. Might not lol but that's what my problem is the weatherstripping material keeps coming loose causing the scoop to come loose

It didn't have any weather stripping. Just 3m tape stuck to the bottom of the scoop and seven bolt brackets.
