Need to attach an is boot lip with adhesive....

Postby Mne666 » Wed Sep 11, 2013 6:42 pm

Hi

I just took delivery of an is boot lip for my e30, someone in the past has kindly chopped off the bolts so drilling the boot is out of the question.

So I need an adhesive which is a fairly fast grab and can grip to the boot and to the rubber of the spoiler...

Any ideas??

I think I used something very similar to this stuff when I installed a 535is spoiler on my 325ix. It was used to hold the front down flat. Held very well.

Some of us don't even have 140hp, let alone enough gearing to enjoy high speeds :P
