What kind of glue should I use inside my headlight housing?

Got some LED tubes im going to install inside my headlights but what kind of glue should I use. The LED tubes are a silicone rubber material looking to install it on my plastic black painted housing.

don't use glue. drill some tiny holes and use either nylon string or jeweler's wire.

all these leds, halos, tubes, they all fail. if u glue them, there is no turning back. if u use wire, u can always remove it cleanly. and then redo if u must.

Tiny holes would allow moisture to get in would it not?

Silicon would hold it well and not be difficult to remove.

u won't be drilling through the whole headlight. it will just be where the shroud/reflectors are which are contained inside the headlight.
