Default Reattach rubber belt molding on '82 GT

Several of the belt moldings on my cars are rolling up and detaching themselves from the surface by so doing. These are attached with the original adhesive foam material from the factory.
I've been told that placing them in a hot or boiling water bath will cause them to return to their original flat, and thus attachable, shape.
Any thoughts?

3M makes an adhesieve for just that purpose-i've used it w/sucess to attach body moulding onto the front doors of a retired p71.Had to park it next to a wall w/a prop rod to hold pressure on it overnight as it cured-i could not peel it off the next day if i tried.A heat tool on low(or even a hairdryer) prior to attaching would get the shape back.Hope this helps!

Default Thanks

I used a double-sided trim and emblem tape made by 3M, I think, and so far is working. I first removed and cleaned the trim and the body surface. I put the warped rubber under a heavy weight on the porch floor of my shop where the sun could heat it.
So far so good.
