Moriwaki Radiator Fins Install...?

I just acquired a NIB set of the Moriwaki Radiator fins. For those of you that have installed these what seems to be the best way to install them as far as attaching them? The instructions say to drill and rivet but I would like to avoid drilling the fairings if possible. Obviously double sided tape is an option but I would think with the heat they my not stay attached for long...

Thanks

Most threads I've read about installing rad fins use double sided tape with no issues. Just get good tape not dollar store tape.

Mine, well they're copies, are held on with the 3m stuff that is used to put on Vent-Visors.
Just clean both surface is really well with an alcohol based cleaner, I used isopropanol alcohol. Then just peel and stick

Mine is taped on and they have close to 30k on them and the only thing the heat has done is crack the clear finish.
