Fixing front bumper...

The rubber strip on the front bumper is coming off... looks like the PO had tried to fix it previously by using glue (Gorilla glue, looks like) - anyway, it's sagging bad on one side and looks like the hooks that are supposed to hold it in place have mostly been broken off and bent out of shape.

What's the best way to fix it so it stays in place finally!?

If you put a blob or silicone every 6 inches or so, more frequent around corners and on ends, then hold it on with some duct tape it will NEVER come off. If you do plan on repairing the bumper or re-finishing it, it would be best to do that before gluing that on. A little silicone goes a LONG way.
