    Door membrane adhesive??

    Sorry this topic doesn't excatly fit here, but I have been trying to find proper adhesive for glueing the plastic membrane back onto the door, and been everywhere without success.

    Advertisement


    Most places recommend the contact adhesive, but that not exactly right is it? It dries kind of hard and won't be sticky again.

    Someone pointed me to Holden dealers for the proper thing, which comes in a roll, you put it on, remains tacky and so is kind of reusable. But been there and they never herad of it, nor have anything to recommand...

    Doesn't most cars from factory uses an adhesive that is sort of like blu-tack, except is black, softer and way stickier? One can peel off the plastic membrane for repairs, and just put it back afterwards, as the glue is still sticky.

    How can this product not exist?

    Where can I get the glue for sticking CD to magazines? Seems like a widely seen but rather specialized stuff. What's it called? (if any special name...)

    Also What's a "leccy tape"?

    most vinyl glues will do. I think its a general purpose stuff. Its the stuff you wipe onto both surfaces, wait till its almost dry and press together. That glue remains flexible. Its kind of yellowy. Wish I knew the name of it.

    Rubber adhesive, I think that's the same as what tekkie said. You can get it at art supply shops. It's the same sort of stuff they use to stick cd's to magazines but it's the same consistency as honey.

    OK,
    The rubber adhesive, if it is still around was called .... wait for it 'Gumbo' possibly would be quite suitable and yes your best bet would be the likes of Oxlades in the Valley (Brisbane people)

    Mastic is the black goop that is re-usable, use it sparingly it's messy stuff, any decent hardware store.

    Leccy tape.... electrical insulation tape.

    Cheers

    And NEVER, as I once learnt at a bad time, get Mastic confused with Sikaflex. Trust me, you do not want the front left corner of the fibreglass roof of a DS to "pop" as you are doing 110 on the Hume Hwy! It was interesting and fortunately I was able to reattach the roof.

    Mastic is sticky goop that never seems to go off while Sikaflex goes off real fast and sets rock solid. mallet

    Selleys D-Mastic is the stuff. Good for panel mounting too.

    this could go either way with varying results - and the mine boogies! Especially if someone decided to use mastic for the old smear on the black toilet seat trick and used sikaflex instead! OOH ERRR disappro cry

    We assume you mean cling wrap over the bowl. If you mean cling wrap was used elsewhere, we may want details. Times, dates, locations, web sites, where to buy black market photos...

    Well, personally I don't want all those details, but I am reliably informed that some here might eek! whistle tongue whip

    I see this thread has stirred up quite a bit of interest since I last visited...

    Stuey:
    Selleys D-Mastic is the stuff. Good for panel mounting too.
    Is Selleys "Butyl Mastic" the same thing??
    (I mean for the toilet not door membrane wink )
    Only one I have found and only one they know at the local Bunnings warehouse.

    Sikaflex does have very similar functional description as mastic though...

    rc, I'm not sure. D-Mastic was in a green tube (fits in a standard caulking gun) last time I bought it, and it doesn't go hard. I bought it from a car parts shop similar to Super Cheap called Marlows, over here.

    Incidentally, I know a panel beater that sticks roofs on with Sikaflex and no welding...

    That's how the roof of my D Special has stayed on for over three years now (after the roof popping event).

    I am told that the firewalls in later Crummydores is stuck on with Sikaflex.

    Why not just rip the plastic off and cover the holes with gaffa tape?

    The doors I mean, not the toilet seats!
