    Sikaflex or tiger seal are the best to use

    araldite, i used that for my aero grill it fell off the day after lol.

    I bought anothor one the other day forgot what its called but its cheaper than tigerseal and sikaflex and just as good ill find it tomorrow.
    Sikaflex, tigerseal is the nuts tho sticks anything.

    It is problematic to bond plastic to metal-- different flex and expansion properties, etc. I would use double stick automotive trim tape.

    Tiger seal and sikaflex is what you use to bond bodykits and stuff its fine. Used it to fit and seem abs archs to cars.

    sikaflex is the way to go its used to bond caravan alloy sheets together and expands with heat and the adhesive never breaks down.
    and you can get it in black.
