    Glue for sign foam question.

    I want to try and make gauntlets using the "For Sale" signs and I was wondering what everyone would recommend for glue. I had tried using hot glue before but it looked awful. I want something that will bond well with the surface but also dry quickly. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Maybe a two part apoxy glue??
    If you design will allow it,you might be able to keep the sign together with small rivets?or some other fastner?
    Sounds like a road trip to your local Home Depot or Lowes

    UMD - I used Superglue for the initial connection, this allows you to connect everything very quickly and dries fast!
    Then flip it over and run a beed of hot glue on the reverse side of the seam and your good to go?

    i taped mine on the outside then used hot glue on the inside. you shouldn't see the glue at all. then bondo over the seams and sand it out.
