Thanks for all the advice. I just finished my install this morning. The hardest past was removing the old 3M tape (OEM factory take-off flares). I ended up purchasing a rubber 3M eraser wheel. It worked great! Then I used some light sand paper to make sure everything was real smooth. The final step was to spray on some adhesive remover and wiped off any remaining adhesive. Then I washed the fender flares real good and let them dry.
From there, I rubbed on some 3M adhesion promotor and put on the new 3M automotive grade foam tape.
I installed the fender flare like the video and your recommendations suggested. I secured the flare with the mounting screws and then I carefully pulled the backing from the 3M tape. Then ran my hands along the flare while applying pressure. afterwords I used a hair dryer (as hot as I could get it) and ran it around the edges of the flare and while running my hand and applying pressure once more. Everything sits nice and flush with a good snug fit.
Here are a few pics. I installed the Sterling Gray Metallic. It off sets the silver ingot super duty nicely.
