what's the best way to attach a back round?

Is there any thing better than tape to attach vinyl back rounds to a very large (125), that's already in place ?

Can I use pure silicone grease & a squeegee ?

any suggestions??

Don't laugh but, I have known several folks who have simply used petroleum jelly (vaseline) and it works!!!

All of those will work...with the tank already in place it will be a little tougher to get it on there. I used double sided tape to put mine on. Now I just paint the back of my tanks.

i think the safest bet if it's already in place and in use is vegetable oil/olive oil and a squeegee.
If you put off what you can do today until tomorrow it will never get done cause tomorrow never comes. It's always today.
