using the seam tape might work but it will just come off again
Perhaps - but I don't think it will come off as easily.
Adhesive technology has improved since the 70's. Back then it was common for car body side moldings and rear view mirrors to fall
off all the time, now they don't.
The seam tape was applied over a filled and painted gap thus increasing the surface area available for adhesion.
over the tape and edges, the paint helps hold the tape in place and seals both it and the adhesive from exposure to the air.
Here's to individuality while respecting differing opinions.
