Re: Need help attaching door mirror to it's casing

Hi there and welcome.

I've used a product called Tiger Seal successfully before. It forms a strong yet flexible bond, and is even used to secure body kits & spoilers to cars. You would need to secure the mirror in place with masking tape for a day or sao until the bond was properly made.

Another possibility is the hi-bond adhesives used to secure internal mirrors to the windscreen.

Hope this helps in some way.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
