Okay, so this seems very basic and I am a little embarrassed to ask, but I searched and could not find info -

I have a new speaker panel cover for my Taxi. Do I install this with double sided tape to hold it in? Or just slide it into the slot on the panel? The current one is not attached and it just kinda falls out when I remove the speaker panel. I don't like this, because it seems much more prone to scratches this way. I have two other WPC games and this doesn't happen, so seems like they are attached by either tape, or glue.

Any experts want to chime in? thinking double sided 3M tape? I dropped close to $100 on the new cover, so want to do this right.

Thanks guys.

I used glue for the speaker panel on my F14 (so you can reposition it before the glue dries). You get only one shot with double sided tape, because i think it will take the ink/paint off the plastic if you need to reposition it.

I should mention however that my F14 didnt have a slot for the speaker cover on the top side, so it had to be glued to keep it in place. Not sure if its glued when it is held in place by the slots.
