Yeah - £20-odd was what he said last year, depending on level of artwork detail.

Had mine delivered ages ago and fitted it recently - looks awesome (it was a Saracen one).

However, I fitted it on a clean and degreased frame and left it in a room temperature and dry environment for about 30 hours to really let the sticky adhesive cure properly. 3 hour ride later (in clement weather to say the least!) and thought I would just check to see how the glue held out and 'ping' - it drops off with the lightest of touches and hits the deck.

I would guess that as it was sat around for a year (in a dark, dry and room temperature environment though) the glue may have passed its best. Anyone recommend a decent adhesive I can buy to really stick this on and make sure it doesnt come off? It had a mesh like sheet of ahesive on the back.

Other than this, which I am sure is a very isolated incident, I cant fault it, they look stunning on the front.

Coincidence that this thread should come back to the top now as I was going to look for it and post this anyway.

Haven't tried it myself but several people have suggested the sticky patches Halfords sell for sticking rear-view mirrors to windscreens?
