Try #2 I wire wheeled all the RTV off the covers and then tried to refit with 3m molding adhesive looks like it may work better but the covers don't fit the tank very well I don't know at this point how to get them to stay on.

before the RTV adhesive I also tried 3m double sided molding tape. Same thing i used on my swing arm covers and stock tank guards It wouldn't stick to the Safari tank.

Let me know if anyone comes up with a solution.
We pulled the molds staright from a safari tank. is it possible that a tank can distort a bit?. All the ones we fit up seamed to fit very well.
Ill look into other adhesives.
When Quality matters,Its all about choices.
