      I sure have. Fishing line worked great.

      As for putting them back on I use a good 3m tape. This one has worked best for me the only issue, which is really no issue, is it is not wide enough to cover the mount with one strip. You have to put two on each next to each other and then trim off the overlap. I used a sharp hobby knife and it works great.

      I prepare the surface with alcohol and then stick the tape on. I then press hard around the edges to see where the mount edge is. I then carefully cut just inside that line I created by pressing on it.

      I tried another 3m tape that was an inch wide and clear. They looked great but my left one fell off going down the road. I don't know why because I did everything as I should. The tape on the mounts that fell off were soft and stretchy so I thought it was the issue but the other side is still holding strong. I've been watching them close for about a week but I don't feel comfortable suggesting it. The wrap I put on them held up really well considering it went skipping down the road at sixty. I used some touch up paint and replaced the wrap and you can't tell it ever happened.

      This is the one that has worked well for me.
      Amazon.com: 3M 03614 Scotch-Mount 1/2" x 15' Molding Tape: Automotive

      Note that the Amazon listing says 1/2 but what I received was 1/4. It worked fine but that is why I had to lay two strips next to each other on each mount. Maybe you'll receive 1/2. Either way trimming is required because of the shape of the mounts so it didn't bother me.

      Thank you very much for the info! It will be put to use here soon as I mounted my lowers a bit too low and want to re-position them up by about an inch.

      I just took mine off and put them back on with this.

      https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002JOVUO0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

      I used it once before to attach one side when the factory strip gave out too.

      You can get it in different widths but I used this. I just put two pieces side by side and trim with a sharp hobby knife.

      Ive used this stuff on a number of things and it has always worked well for me.

      You will love the CycloOps fins. I know I do. Id recommend getting the uppers too.

      I just did this to mine.
