    what glue to use when attaching stuff to fiberglass

    What glue do you use when attaching stuff to fiberglass? Thanks.

    It seems like the nylon spacers that I made my knee darts are coming apart after trooping at the IU homecoming game this past Saturday.

    I've had really good luck with epoxy, but make shure its the stuff called Plastic weld. It seems to bond much better than standard 2 part epoxy. I've used this on all my fiberglass armor, and never had a problem. It comes in a dual tube applicator. You just squeeze it out & mix it up. You can get it at any walmart. Hope that helps

    EDIT: BTW, if you are making your knee darts out of spacers, I would glue them together 1st, then drill a hole through the center of the entire knee dart and put a pin, (cutt off bolt or whatever) through the dart w/ epoxy as well. That way you know for shure they aren't coming apart
