Broken Door Panel Empty
PostSubject: Broken Door Panel   Broken Door Panel EmptyMon Jun 25, 2007 7:47 pm

The driver door interior panel has a broken clip so it flops all over when ever the door closes. I made a metal clip that fits fine but the problem is I can't seem to glue it to the plastic that makes up the panel. So far I have tried PC-7 epoxy and JB Weld which is suppose to adhere to anything. The first time I close the door after mounting the "repaired" panel the clip comes off and I can then see the plastic has not been adheared to. Any sugestions on what type of glue to use? Anyone know what king of plastic the door panels are made of?

I would try using fasteners if possible. Rivets, maybe? I don't know what you're trying to glue, exactly, but most adhesives don't respond very well to shock, and if they don't have sufficient flat surface area to adhere to, they tend to break or "unstick".
