Has anyone had to remove and re-install the X hinge. Mine is well stuck on my old dash that was messed up in my crash. I know it's held on with 3M adhesive, but I can't find any locally in a small roll. I am looking for 3M double sided tape right?? Anyone know where I can get the same stuff that's used on it? That stuff really holds.

Try a good auto parts store. They sell the stuff for auto body repair and it's pretty common.
If you don't have any luck at the auto-zone types,try a older parts store like a NAPA or a mom-and-pop-type. Or just go to any auto-body shop and buy a foot off their rolls. They might even give away the amount you'd need.
I know from a past life the stuff is common as can be. Should not be hard to get.
Cheers

Any Napa or large auto parts store should have the 3m bumper tape. You will have to buy a 3 ft roll, but it lasts for a long time. 8)

you just stop buy a local body repair shop if you know any around you they could give you the tape in amount you want just ask and maybe you get for free even if they want a couple of bucks better than buying a whole roll that if you dont use up may get dryed out sitting around

Get it at Radio Shack

Radio shack sells regular two sided tape and also "super hold" which is the 3M tape. It comes in 1x3 inch strips for just a few bucks.

Wal-Mart has what you are looking for. It's made by3-M as mentioned and you are looking for the one with the red peel-off backing. Napa has it also. It's less than $5.
