    Car Detailing
    Hi all, after a bit of advice. I used some spray adhesive on my garage, it was a cold day and some of the adhesive was blown onto my car 5 metres or so away, I didn't notice at the time, but now I have some adhesive on the car and it seems pretty solid. There's a few bits where it has landed...

  4. rubber to plastic adhesive suggestions?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Need to stick a rubber strip to a plastic trim. I used sikaflex on sideskirts - which was great but trying to 'handle' that stuff on a delicate piece of trim would be difficult (plus I dont want to spend on a new tube of sika for 5ml of glue. I've tried superglue - but it goes brittle. Would...

    Hey all, Anybody got their plates fitted with the adhesive pads you can get? I have a new set of nice clean plates to put on the car and would prefer not to have to drill them.

  14. Adhesive for rear boot spoiler

    Alfa 164 & 166
    I recently bought a genuine Alfa Romeo boot spoiler for my 166 (the zender one) and wondered if anyone can recommend a decent glue to stick that puppy on there ? I know Alfa provide a glue kit for about £30, but that takes 24 hours before you can actually use the car..... So basically, do any...
