Make sure to clean the areas that are going to adhere very well, use wax & grease remove, the alcohol pads they recommend (it's basically just rubbing alcohol), and adhesive promotor. Make sure to get a good scuff with 80 grit on the xenon parts where the double stick tape sits. For the bumpers they might not fit just right, my 95 front was a little too small so the corners needed slits cut in them. If you don't want any screws, you could always use christmas trees or push rivets, and then paint over them. If you wanna go really strong, follow the same procedure for cleaning/prep for the 3m tape, but find a body suppy store and get some panel bonding epoxy, you can get crap that'll virtually permanently bond your panels on. In theory 3M tape is VERY strong, I've seen it, but personally I've had issues with it on my gfx
