Glues or at least Clues?

Post by GarageOnAWall » Wed Mar 01, 2017 3:35 pm

It seems that occasionally we all find ourselves needing to repair our cars?

I've always used 'white glue' or Elmers school glue as it's branded in the US. This works well for it's water soluble and doesn't seem to 'fog' adjacent surfaces. Works wonders for tonneaus, bumpers, seats etc.

However, I sometimes find myself needing to affix items that I have no way of supporting while they set such as tiny hood ornaments. What glues would you recommend for such tasks? Truth be told, my need in this instance is for a resin 1:18 car but hoping to learn something new that could be applied to any scale?

Thanks for any help, BB

I've used epoxy and contact glue in the past, with good result. For supporting an item while the glue hardens, I use a so-called 'third hand'
