Glue it back, use that fast glue, the gel one.

heres a suggestion rod

instead of trying to glue edge to edge ...(which doesn't work long time )  cut a piece of aluminium sheet that will overlap both portions (obviously to the contour of the edge section - and corner )

this will give added strength to the repair ....and possibly wont be seen from the outside ?

I have done similar ...some time ago, to the pins that hold to the back of the side cover ...no movement or fracturing has occurred since ...where as end butt repairs always seem to fail


good luck

Sidepanel? It looks like a clean break? Yes, Gorilla glue or similar but with one addition: glue a plate over the back of the join too so that any flex doesn't go through the join alone. Plastikard or thin aluminium will both do.

[Edit] Charlie arrived about two seconds ahead of me!!!

Gracias Amigos

I guess I should have taken more notice of the right side panel,
where the previous had done a similar, though larger repair.

Stupid is as stupid does ... 2015-017

Not sure if "Gorilla" glue is available here but two part epoxy might do the trick
and I have some light aluminium panel about somewhere.

more anon

See if you can find some Evo-Stik 'Serious Glue'. It's polyurethane-based and will have more 'give' in it for temperature expansion/contraction. Two-part epoxy will crack over time.

Ok thank's to you all for the glue advice.

I'll have a look for something with a bit of flexibility.

and this is where I'm at now with the aluminium...

That's the ticket Rob. My experience of Gorilla glue is that it works well but doesn't keep, at least in the small plastic bottle making it an expensive proposition. Two pack epoxy areldite etc works well on those panels. You will need it somewhere warm in these temps tho'.


We'll see you on the road soon hopefully.

Okay, so I'm out-voted Very Happy About thirty years ago we used two-part Araldite to repair the cam tunnel in a Honda CJ250. At least ten years later it was still in there doing its job.

Hi Rob,

I used two part Araldite on both my side panels and was very pleased with the result.

Cheers,

Steve.
