Right, thats what I just used on my alfaand worked ok (for now, hehe). Follow Darrens advice on getting the spot cleaned - the kit usually comes with a pad of solvent/cleaner (all it is is IPA- isopropanol).Usually the $1.99 version of rear view mirror adhesive is the best bet.
As others have written, rearview mirror adhesive works better than epoxy, superglue, spit, etc. But honestly, nothing works all that well. Do you really need to latch your vent windows? If someone wants to break into your spider, they can easily slice the top. Why not leave the vent window latches off to give the crooks a less destructive entry route?I have a 1985 Spider and both of the vent window latch handles have come off. What is the best adhesive to glue the handles back on? I live in Texas so heat and sun will be an issue. Thanks, Mike
Right. HF is the most dangerous "common" laboratory acid around. Still, driving is dangerous too.I gave up with them. I had a plan to drill a hole through the glass, tap a hole in the latch and find a nice stainless screw to hold them together. Maybe I will revisit it when I am retired and I have a lot of time on my hands.
A friend who is a chemist and Alfista suggested etching the glass with Hydrofluoric Acid so that the glue would have a better chance of sticking. We use that stuff at my place of work. It is nasty and I am not sure that I would want to smuggle some out.
