Question 2nd Try. Fixing a cracked 240 Dash

I purchased a nice shell plastic dash skin to cover my cracked dash

If you have affixed one prior do you have any tips? I was thinking of using spray adhesive and double sided tape. Appreciate the insights.

The adhesion by the glass has me concerned. I am going to use spray adhesive and the glue they provide and double sided tape by the vents.

Carefully note the temperature rating of adheives used on the dash. While it will get to about 140 degrees inside the car, the dash, in direct sunlight, may well get to double that.
