Paint doesn't stick well when cold.

Great. Guess this goes on hold until it gets warmer.

Good thing you're putting it on hold. JB Weld won't work. It'* not flexible. When you remove or install the cover, it must flex. JB weld is strong, but not sticky.

Use silicone adhesive. It'* sticky, flexible, and impervious to the heat and cold in that location. It'* held mine together for a long time.

I'm not quite sure how you take your cover off, but mine can come off w/o flexing it.

The 92-95 smaller covers (understanding 95 was S2 NA big cover) clip on and need to flex to pull off.
