I've used JB weld to hold cylinder sleeves in place, you'll be good (I know you've already decided to use it, just wanted to add further justification).

Been taking pictures as the process moves along. I stripped out just about 98% of all non neccesary plastic and I'm meshing it with the same material I used on my grille. Going to be painting it to match the car and accents plus putting something else on it
