glue used to hold radio antenna to front clam?

I need to glue the radio antenna back onto the underside of the front clam. What did Lotus use or what will work to glue them back on? Also the zip/cable ties that hold the wiring harness's to the shell. I couldn't find the OEM ones for sale. Where can I source them?
Thanks

Lotus used duct tape to fix the antenna to the clam, funny enough

I just removed mine when I noticed it was loose. If you don't use the radio and don't want to just tape it back on it's easy to remove. There's a connector in the wiring to split it near the fuse box under the passenger side access panel, just disconnect that, make sure it's un-taped in both wheel wells, then pull it out through the middle of the clam between the radiator grills.

I think it is the same adhesive they used for a bunch of things, a single part urethane

Sikaflex is what I use as a replacement

Yeah they used some kind of black silicon adhesive on mine. I will check out the Sikaflex.
