That's what I did a few years ago. Works like a charm.
I just got self adhesive velcro strips, only used the soft portion. I put 4 1" sections at 4 different spots. It makes it a little more difficult to put windstop on and off but totally silent now.

I too applied inconspicous self adhesive velcro,shortly after buying the car. One of the tabs was missing. It really secured the inordinately expensive parts that do look great. It completely eliminated the rattles.
