Need help. Window problem

Post by drummer3125 » Sat Aug 17, 2019 10:00 am

Can someone please tell me what glue resin car manufacturers use for windows. I have a CMR Lamborghini that the front window needs reinstalled. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not sure what specifically manufactures use, but Cyanoacrylates adhesives or CA glue goes a long way. Remember less is more, and use a toothpick or something similar to apply. Good luck!

I use this:

Works good and dries invisible. Still as Kraftig said, less is more.

Any of the plastic kit window/clear parts glues. Would not want to use CA unless you have had lots of experience with it as it can fog the window with the fumes if you use a lot, or if you actually get it on the window good luck repairing it.

One of the glues is this https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Testors-351 ... Sw94JdM-B5

Not suggesting you use this guy but it gives you an idea. Not sure where you are located but lots of hobby shops carry this or something similar. If you cannot get something similar, try the white glues in craft shops. The stuff you used when in school gluing paper etc together. If you get this stuff on the window portion you can either wash it off with water or let it dry and peel if off. Should not leave any marks on the window.

Pattex Clear Adhesive is what I saw GT Spirit uses.
