    Sticking ali together

    Any other ways instead of welding especially in these technological days of glueing wings on cars ? I've got to fabricate a couple of housings .I've just finished one but it meant 3 trips to a welder to tack etc plus the cost when they are only prototypes.

    2k glues, cartridge type adhesives ,anything like that . They are not load bearing but have to take vibration more than anything. Was thinking of trying Lumiweld ,any comments ?

    Kev , I run a BMW / MINI Bodyshop. The latest repair method for some panels , MINI 1/4s etc is to "glue" them on , this is the approved method by the manufacturer. The technology is there but the cost may be too much....like £100 per tube!!

    Yes SIKA-FLEX would work , I guess it depends how permanent you want it to be.

    If its just a prototype, why not make it in steel, so it's easy to weld, and then make the final one in ali.

    You could also pop rivet it depending on what it is you are making.
