glue (urgent)

Can someone tell us where I'm likely to find bodyshop glue for fixing panels together ie for making extensions.

I've extended my front skirt because of the extreme bad fit with a combination of super glue and some other glue for automotive parts but is very slow hardering/drying.


When I'm screwing it in, I can can hear it cracking etc


thnx in advance

Re: glue (urgent)

Yeah I know it's a bit late but I've sorting out the skirt since 3 this afternoon and this happening it's really bugging me. It's hard work esp when things just break after all all that work.

I need to be sure that this will be ok. I'm trying forget nails??

Re: glue (urgent)

Terrsan 9220 Power adhesive (made by 3M) would do the job, we use it when bonding the roof's onto the Limo's. 9200 adhesive sealent would also work, but the 9220 is better.

Re: glue (urgent)

Yeah I've used a hot glue gun and some mesh and it seems to have done the job fine but it does say interior use only. Hope this won't be a problem???
