ME Super, MX front grip

I have seen people install the front grip from something like a Super Program onto their small M bodies like the ME, ME Super, MX, etc. How are they attached? I would think that they would have a screw that holds them onto the body but I haven't seen any screw holes on my ME, ME Supre or MXs.

I bought a couple of Flipbac rubber adhesive grips for my K1000 and K2. I bought the larger one as a finger grip for the front, and one smaller, thinner one for the back as a thumb grip. I cut the thinner one in half and used one grip for both cameras. The adhesive is solid and the grips are comfortable... about like using a Super Program. I'll follow up with pictures when I have some time.

I thought about using a high strength double sided tape. There is one that I used to reattach a molding to my wife's Chevy Impala about a year ago and it is still holding strong. It's pretty thick though, at least a 16th of an inch or so. Please post pics. I'd like to see how yours turned out.
