    how about trying this type of clips for mocking up
    cleco items - Get great deals on Business, Office Industrial, Vehicle Parts Accessories items on eBay UK!
    as i have used these pins and clamps for holding parts together for mock up
    also if gluing ally try etch priming first, as all aircraft parts i have bonded had to be painted to prevent corosion and improve adhesion

    Stuck some ally body panels and cappings on my project with Tiger Seal, as well as brass->marine ply and ally->ply etc. Tested it before, stuck really well. e.g. the wood would rip before the glop.

    Used HTS2000 before (similar to Lumiweld), worked really well. On thin bits it could be a bit close to melting the bits. Durafix looks good and more versatile, but not seen it used yet. JB Weld is solid/no flex, if that matters.

    Has to be a working prototype , already made the cardboard one to check fitment Once I decide which design is best I'll remake it and have it welded.

    Gaffa tape and cardboard Kev!
    Any Sikaflex will glue ally, just sand it a bit first to rough it up, its kin sticky stuff! depends if you want it to last though.

    Thanks for the offer Mark, the trouble is that at the moment it's a 'make it up as your go along' procedure . I've checked E bay but no 552 as has been recommended for ali.
