#1 Adhesive for Bonnet skin

Post by PhilP » Fri May 17, 2019 6:21 pm

Hi
Could anybody recommend a good adhesive for re attaching the bonnet skin back to the frame. The previous bonnet rubber was very hard and this is the cause of the skin coming away from the frame. I have fitted a softer seal so hopefully it won’t do it again.
Thanks
Phil

The correct one is Sikaflex 221 . Widely available on the internet via a google search , but you may also be able to get it from yacht chandlers or caravan repair shops
