While I despise 5 minute epoxy for anything where high strength is needed, for this application it is great.

I use epoxy--AFTER roughing up the plastic to give it "tooth".

Yep, whatever epoxy you happen to have laying around, as long as knock the sheen off the plastic like Jeff mentioned. I'd still rather use something longer than 5 minute, if for no other reason than it usually stinks worse.

If you like horrid smells, you might want to send ghrocketman your address. From some of his posts over the years, I think he could fix you up.

I'll pass, but somebody ran over a skunk down the road from the house. I can box it up and get it to him at near perfect timing for max rank and liquification. I just need to know soon enough to snag it from the clutches of the buzzards.
