    Thread: Best Glue for Door Molding

    1. 02-25-2010 11:43 AM #1
      I couldn't find a topic about this. I've used a few different kinds of glue on my side door molding, and in 6 months they're always starting to fall off again. What have you guys had good luck with in terms of setting speed, strength, and endurance? Thanks much.

      I have cleaned and scrubbed off all the old gunk on the door and side molding then just used 3m double sided tape... has worked well for me.

      ^^^^

      Definitely agree with that, the 3m automotive attachment tape that buddylove is talking about is the way to go... Its like 10 dollars for a roll that will do your whole car

      RV glue works really well. Hold where you want it for like a minute or two. Of course its a more permanent fastening.

      Has anyone ever used the 3M adhesion promoter? A body shop recommended it to my friend for side skirt application.

      When I was in autobody at an Audi/VW dealership, that's what we used. The 3M tape, just make sure you clean all surfaces, and it really helps using that promoter. Also make sure the parts/panels are warm. If it's somewhat cold at all, it'll fall off in a week. Use a hair dryer if you need to heat it up a little.
