Since the topic is tape, I'm curious what everyone uses to keep interiors securely in place.? All recommendations appreciated!

Ditto on Slick 7 strapping tape.

Straights are for fast cars. Turns are for fast drivers.

I use clear tape like this to hold interior and also reinforce body, tape pans. Yes I also use strapping tape around mounting holes but the clear stuff works well around the nose. Cheap and light.
