Two words:
Shoe Goo

Better than servo tape

+1, parma sells this tape. It's clear and really strong.

I do use shoe goo in some instances in addition to the screws and servo tape, but that is mainly on my electric car i'll shoe goo around wires so they don't fly out and rub against the ground.

I use nitro blast, alcohol or for really stubborn dirt acetone to clean the area and then put the tape down.
