Thread: conv. top bracing

    conv. top bracing

    Any day now the steel I ordered should be in. I will post pics of my fabrication and installation, which some may or may not agree with, but I'm going to try it my way.

    One question, what is the panel bond (3M maybe) that jdinner talked about that is so strong it's stronger than welding. URL?

    I would like to know too. I heard that you can't buy it unless you're certified.. Certified??? for what? To mix epoxy!
    I know its some pretty mean stuff but, just one more thing to make it more expensive.

    3m swears by it,ive used it several times putting qtrs. and roof panels on.you actually glue the whole area instead of spot welds,similiar to the way older corvettes are glued together.i worked in a large production body shop in atlanta and they made us use it,i liked it for the convience of it but i always wondered how it will hold up over time.

    Another note to add to this. Its in a dual tube type caulking gun. Special nozzles are fixed onto the tubes that mix it while you eject it.
    Most fiberglass supply stores or marine supply stores should carry it.

    Do you think this would work to attach a fiberglass header to the FIero windshield top area where I cut off the roof? It would make my life easier if I could use the product. I would use it to attach the fiberglass over the A post as well.

    Thanks Duane!

    This looks like the stuff I need. I think I will fill in the wide portions with 3M cat hair first, then bond it.

    I will post the results.
