    Does anyone know a supplier of Sikaflex on the 'net ( 552 in particular) ? I can't find any stockist listings online.

    JB weld is being considered as well .

    Gripfil takes ages to set Neil when used thickly,f rom experience. Need something that sets quickly ,at least as a initial fix.


    I had to make it in ali due to the shape as working it in steel would have been impossible, much of it is 90' joins and I need parts of it to be 'clean' , for clearance issues ) so pop rivets are out of the frame

    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.

    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.
