Default How would you mount this?

I'm looking for ideas. I got these awesome looking Rusty Jones dash bezels and realized once I got them they have no mounting system or tabs like the stock bezels. So I called RJ for advice and was told he "glues" them on with JB Weld Epoxy(really).....After some thought, I don't want to do that(I'm sure I don't have to go into the reasons) So, I spoke with WitchDoctor's today to see if they had any ideas(which they did not) or if I could return them. WD would take them back but I had to pay return shipping and a 20% restock fee totaling ~$35, which I am in noway going to eat.
Back on topic, I'm keeping the bezels and want to use them without gluing. This is what they look. I was thinking about drilling a few holes and using finished hex bolts with small butterfly nuts to hook into the dash. Any other ideas?

Ditto on the double sided tape. Cut some thin strips (they make all sorts of thicknesses) apply in the grooves, then onto current bezels.

I bought similar ones, used here. I used clear silicone in about 10-12 spots on each one. Seems to be holding out in my cold garage. I agree the 3M molding tape would work as well. Too bad they didn't use some sort of fastener though.

About 6 or 7 dabs of clear silicone hold each one of mine on.

I like the idea of silicone; it's secure, yet easy and clean to remove.

That's where I got the idea to drill and use a finished hex-head screw with a butterfly nut

Really, the silicone is working for you two...? Are you using an adhesive silicone like this: Permatex RTV ?
3M double sided tape would be the easiest way to go but no matter what the stuff is always visible between the surfaces and since this is a cosmetic part I don't want that.

thanks for the advice.

clear silicone I think. Drilling holes you can never change your look. Double side tape will let go in time from water.
