How to install underglow neon strips???

I bought a led kit from ebay and I don't know how to install them.
Here is the link...
http://www.ebay.com/itm/360436762907...84.m1497.l2649

Any suggestions on how this can be done?
No mounting gear came with the kit.

I would use some strong double sided tape or zip ties.

I would zip tie them but there aren't any holes or lines to grab onto. Drilling holes is the last thing I would do.

What double sided tape would you recommend? It has to be adhesive from rubber to metal.

if you go the 3m route, just make sure you clean the hell out of the area you will be applying it to. you want the cleanest surface possible to make sure it sticks well.

I'll try the 3M tape. Does anyone know any brackets I can drill or hang on for them?
