Default Audi light install

so i've searched and searched, but havent been able to figure out what everyone uses to "glue" the audi lights on the inside of the housing? the ones i've got have a sticky side to them, but i dont trust just that and i dont want to have to take everything apart again to fix it.

i've heard not to use gorrila glue, but nothing more than that. any suggestions?

3M is the best double sided tape but the tape on them should hold fine.

i dont know how all the strips are, but mine have the sticky side on the back of the led's. and i was going to mount the led's pressed directly to the lens, so i need something that is going to connect them without looking bad.

Mine are stuck on the outside of the lens its not even noticeable and it looks very good. Got them at pep boys, I connected them along with the headlights directly to the battery. I spliced in one switch for the led's, one switch for the headlights, and a fuse and relay.

The lights were $24 at pep boys. The switch was $5. The wire, the fuse box, and the relay I got for free from my dads work, but I saw them at the auto parts store for a few bucks each item. Im thinking you can do it for around $50ish, maybe less.

well currently, i've only got my lights stuck on with the adhesive thats on the back of the led strips. but i still want to add something else to them, to ensure that they stay. i also need something to glue the halos on, and i cant seem to get any help on it either. may just try my own way soon if nobody is going to offer up some help.

here's what it looks like currently

If you want them to be running/turn signals do the diode trick (1N4001) I believe.
