M-Sport Dead Pedal Refurbishment

My dead pedal stainless steel insert started to de-laminate from the plastic base, probably from too many cleaning chemicals, and the bottom edge of the insert was popping up and wouldn't stay down.

I CAREFULLY released the stainless insert from its remaining adhesive backing and thoroughly cleaned the mating surfaces of the metal insert and plastic base.

I bought a 1 inch wide roll of double-sided tape from McMaster-Carr with the appropriate properties (P/N 7602A53, -40/250 F, polyester backing, acrylic adhesive, about the right thickness https://www.mcmaster.com/7602A53/) and applied it to the insert. Re-installed the insert and the dead pedal is like new.

I'll be less-thorough with the cleaning agents and see how it lasts.
