hmm not sure.. but i bet you could drill holes and then use BLACK UV resistant zip ties to hold it in..

i use that for my underengine plastics and it works thumbsup

I just got my wings west lip and I heard a similar story a while back so I decided to put some screws connecting the lip to the bumper. I just drilled them underneath the lip so you couldnt see em. As for the underplastics I dunno what to tell you. I already have 400+ miles on the highway goin 80+ mph with my wings west lip and no problems so far. I guess in some cases the double-sided tape just isnt enuff.

dude, about the broken clips, WW has warranty on all their kits, they should be able to replace the whole lip with only having to pay minor shipping fees. otherwise i'd just screw the bumper onto the other bumper from the inside, it should work fine, drill from the bottom where it's not visible.

zip ties are pretty damn strong, we zip tied a 145lb pledge from our frat to a large steel beam 22ft in the air, and he stayed up there until we cut him down 8 hrs later, belive me, those things are STRONG
