Mounting wing protectors

I'm going to mount wing protectors and besides the small bolts I'd like something between the protector and the wing.
I seem to recall pond liners, but a double sided sticky tape that could take the heat and cold sounds even better.
Any thoughts?

Thanks

if you're gonna use bolts or rivets, then you don't need tape. Just bolt 'em. why a liner? the paints gonna get scratched anyway and you're already drilling holes in the sheet metal.

I used the LR foam pad between the plate and the wing top.
I also made gaskets from pond liner for the sill and quarter plates.
No contact between the plates and the body work.

I always wondered how a double sided HD sticky tape would work. Mine are screwed on so not an option at this point. I am going to have to do something sooner or later as they aren't looking so good. The sun is really beating them up.

I remember seeing a pre made rubber pad that went with the wing protectors in the rovers north catalog or maybe it was expedition exchange, but they make one.

to block salt, sand, and grime ingress that would hasten corrosion
