hello, can anyone advise what glue is best used to stick a headlight lense back onto my citroen? got boat loads of superglue but i'm reluctant to use it unless anyone can say for sure if it will make the lense fog up. if it will, what other glue is best? got some polycement somewhere or will it be a trip to the shops?
thanks

It depends on the plastic used for the lens but the chances are the superglue WILL fog the lens so I would steer clear.

Polycement can also fog lenses if you use too much or smear it. Used in small quantities it should be OK (providing the two plastics are compatible with polycement).

Bear in mind that polycement works by melting and fusing the plastic so you may want to consider alternatives (I have successfully used a UHU type glue in the past) and that is where my knowledge runs out. Sorry!

I use Formula 500 Canopy Glue for clear parts. Takes a good 24 hours to cure properly but its strong, removable and cleans up in water.
