Just a note on gaffing tape. I'm a professional Photographer and I use gaffing tape all the time to tape down cords at events. I've also used it on my van for various mods, experiments, and temporary fixes. In the winter time, you will probably be ok with it not leaving too much of a mess. But leaving it on in higher temps and direct sunlight for long periods of time, the adhesive will degrade and leave a mess on the vehicle. I speak from experience. Lots of Goo Gone or Goof Off and elbow grease experience.

Also, keep it up and do what you feel is right for you! I know you've received some pretty strong comments and opinions here. But do what you can with what you have available and make it work.
