Best adhesive for mounting?

I have an aftermarket footwell lighting control switch as well as a radar that currently are mounted with just sticky velcro.

The Issue: When it gets hot outside the adhesive just becomes goopey and doesnt stay stuck.

Can anyone point me in the direction of something (hopefully local) that i can buy to solve this issue?

Thanks

I would think so. People use it on body kits, spoilers, things like that.

Not sure how permanent you want it, but if you go and get a caulking tube of Urethane, the stuff they use to mount windshields and use that, it'll never move again.

This. I never had issues in my lumina when I had a base knob and floor pan lighting controls.

That's hardcore stuff, my windshield replacer supplied me a tube of it.
