Side Molding adhesive

So I pulled side moldings from cars at the local Pull a Part. I'm finished painting them and need to attach them to my car. I have Scotch double sided tape... but I don't think that is a good idea. Any suggestions?

3M makes trim tape. Its a foam with adhesive on each side. Autozone sells it for about $13.00 a roll.

Ive heard double-sided tape (what brand or type, no idea)

Also found this, not sure how readily available the products they use are though

Yeah the 3M molding tape works great, I used it quite a few times. You can get it at Walmart or a parts store.
