Double Sided Tape

Guys this might be the dumbest post ever, But I don't seem to find an answer. I recently bought MMD headlight splitters which did not come with the required double tape . I tried to shop at Walmart and found one. I went through the instructions and it said it is a permanent tape and could cause damage. And this tape was good for temps ranging between 70 F - 100 F. I live in Phoenix and temps here go well beyond 100 F. So I didn't get it.

I would love to get some advice from you all and see where I can find this tape.

Thanks in Advance!!!

Even though I didn't buy from them?
How much did they charge you?

don;t know what kind of tape they have at wally world, but I would go to an auto parts store and get the real 3M kind. it is permanent enough for your climate. just apply it when the temps are lower and make sure surfaces are clean. you will be fine.

3M tape is what I use on my stang. I have it on my side scoops and tailight bezels. Just ensure the surface is clean so that it sticks good. of course, I am not in AZ.

I'd also suggest using some 3M adhesion promoter:
3M 4298 Adhesion Promoter, Sponge Applicator: Amazon.com: Industrial & Scientific 3M 4298 Adhesion Promoter, Sponge Applicator: Amazon.com: Industrial & Scientific
You can also find it on Ebay. Mask off anyplace you don't want it applied. In my experience it works really well and I use it an anything I'm adhering plastic.
