Which Glue?

2157 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,

For non-misting clear gluing, PVA wood glue is also quite popular. Although white as a liquid, it dries clear. It's also less brittle than many alternatives.
For little accessories as opposed to clear lenses, I would suggest considering silicone sealant. Its very flexible and less likely to cause breakage of delicate accesories. It also tends to dampen down rattles a bit. Perhaps better that the part pulls out relatively easily than breaks because the glue itself is too strong.
