3M double sided automotive tape works better..
make sure you clean everything thoroughly with alcohol first.

on a side note, what color are your OEM sills, and would you be willing to part with them? (if they're black..)

When cleaning the surface, make sure to use 90% or higher rubbing alcohol. The regular alcohol will not work as good.

Not quite.

Regular alcohol will work, you just need to make sure you wipe up the excess water that it contains. 90% pretty much evaporates fully because there is so little water in it. Regular alcohol will leave water residue with minerals in it that will prevent adhesion. As long as you wipe it up with a dry lent free cloth after you clean it then you are good to go.
