Which Glue?

2172 Views 8 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  Tropi
Hello All,

Could someone kindly remind me, which glue to be found here in the UK is the best for general fixing/restoration of cars? Preferably a glue that doesn't mist clear lenses/glass nor (painted) body work.

I have previously used three types with no joy - Superglue, Rubber Cement and Liquid Poly, however this was going back to old Airfix days and learning the hard way.

As ever, any help would be much appreciated.

Best wishes,

Hi Jamie

For any clear glazing fixing, headlamp covers etc., I always use Micro Kristal Klear obtainable from Grand Prix Models or most Local Model shops.

For anything that has to be firm but I might change my mind and move it at a later date than Evo-Stick Multi Purpose Impact Contact Adhesive from Homebase or similar.

For something I don't want to move, like body mounting posts, then I always use 2 part Araldite.

I found the Airfix Type Glues do tend to cause problems with clear glazed parts and it's not very strong anyway and I find Superglues dry a little too brittle for bodyparts. The Gel Superglues seem better than the normal stuff.
