Contact adhesive lasted about a week, but I didn’t put it on both surfaces...

 

Any direction where to find this tape?

Contact works when applied to both sides and then allowed to dry before bonding - other products may work but little bonds to rubber or foam like contact Edited by Waynemol

+1 on the 3m double sided tape, have used it in the past with no damage to neither carbon nor painted surfaces.

If you want it there indefinitely

if you really want it there forever there's the stuff that they use to stick windshields to cars, honestly the stickiest stuff known to man:

Sportsman warehouse, cricket bat protective film. Not the fibre tape rather the film of about 400*120mm.

Can mold with heat (hair dryer) holds up well. I will however replace at each full service for a fresh look.

I would go for the right type of double sided tape, I can't say which brand or which product but it has to be out there. Anything else might work but its not the right solution, since you do want to be able to peel that off  to service/renew/repaint.

 

Not the thick stuff once gets in  hardware store to put mirrors on the wall, this is almost like sellotape, but double layered with a peel off strip

A lot of the offroad guys use something called sika flex, bought at your local hardware store in a silicone style injection tube...

 

Renaisn flexible, is removable if you absolutely have to and have the patience required, but sticks like **** to a blanket. They literally glue trailer panels and accessories with this stuff..
