Special Glue for fixing interior car stuff Sign In

hi all,
so i recall going to a shop to get a dent repaired in my car and i asked the mechanic to fix one of the plastic covers that was loose in the back seat that is in between the windows (on the arch).

he used some quick dry glue and held the plastic piece in until the glue dried.

so now i have another plastic piece I want to glue in but never got around to asking the guy what he used. does anyone here know what i could use?.

There are all sorts of different epoxies out there. A lot of it is just personal preference.

There are some commercial products out there that require special mixing applicators and some that don't.

JB weld is a popular brand for over the counter stuff but it is not up with the commercial stuff.

Google epoxy glues and you will see dozens of choices.

Epoxo 88 is one i use a lot.

Perfect!, thank you for the tip :). I found some Epoxo 88 from china, hopefully it works since it only cost $1. Cheers :).

Just a note on all the assorted glue things out there: Note listed on them the temp range they work for what you are doing - anywhere. If the fix is a broken part and can't be put back together like some interior trim you may want to undo it later for a reason? If so don't choose something too permanent.


Caution on Silicone adhesives + sealers. Know that if those don't work other products won't stick to the Silicone so you are in trouble. Just a warning that one is great but the last you'll use except more of it - nothing else sticks to it!

The 3m stuff is a good choice. They have different kinds of glue for different types of application.
