I thought about using JB Weld or a similar adhesive....but I really wanted to try out the 3M VHB tape that will eventually be used to bond the skins together for another droid.
Since that tape is used to hold things like automobile trim and logos, it would seem something like this should be a cinch.
First I had to clean off a thin strip of paint, which I used a dremel sanding wheel for. The adhesive works best going on roughed up and clean metal.
After thoroughly wiping down the exposed metal, on the 3M VHB tape. I let it set for 10 minutes before gently laying the foot strip into position. I held it firmly in place for two minutes before putting painter's tape to keep it in place.
