    What glue?

    I wanna use snaps to attach my armor to my vest. What glue do I use to attach the snaps to the armor? The armor is Fiberglass. I was thinking Gorilla Glue. Lookin for input.

    I would attach some pvc to the back of the snap, and sand the back of the pvc and the armor to give it a good hold. You could use goop, epoxy, or anything strong should do the job. I used goop and attached magnets to my armor.

    Gorilla Glue is more of a wood glue. I would actually advise against that ... especially given how long it takes to dry and the change in volume associated with it drying.

    Yes, attach the snap to a small piece of pvc or abs, lightly sand the two surfaces that will make contact (NO paint, oil or dust) Devcon makes several types of 2-part epoxy that work great. You can find it at OSH or Wally World.
