JB Weld will probably work just fine, but I prefer SuperWeld. I've used this stuff inside motorcycle carbs, repaired clutch cases with it...great stuff. Highly recommended, but may be harder to get than JB Weld.

Nope can't weld this one, not even with a tig welder.



Update, I picked up JB weld, tired it on repairing the notorious key fob hole ringy dingy and it seems to work with the help of a metal washer. It does take some time before it gets hard though and that'* in room temperature. I may have a bit of a problem on the car since it'* in a vertical position. Vertical is up and down..........no? Well I guess I'll have to let it get hard a bit before applying it. Since I've found a good bonding agent, next will be to go to Home Depot to purchase the hardware for this small project

I would use a 3M Panel Adhesive

I thing its called Lords Fusion our somthing like that. But the bond it makes is stronger then 4130. i believe 213,000 PSI tensile strength. We use it for bonding carbon fiber to aluminum or steel to aluminum etc. Never had a joint break yet. that is with proper site preperation ofcourse.

$25-30 a tube

Well I've done one side with JB Weld and have left it to dry, let'* see how well it holds tomorrow. If it works out then I'll do the other side.


Thanks everyone
