glue for clear plastic parts.
Posted by kevlar86 on Sunday, January 18, 2004 9:05 AM
My question is what type of glue should I use for installing windshields and windows? I dont want to use something that will cloud when it dries. Any advice would be greatly apprecieated. Smile

I for one have always had good luck with "white glue" ... I prefer the Testors brand of white glue ... it goes by the name of "CLEAR PARTS CEMENT" it is part no. 3515 ... give it a try ... but I am sure there are other brands and types just as good ... Smile,Wink, & Grin

I use the same as FreedomEagle1953. IT takes awhile to set, but the bond is very strong when it takes. Stronger than the elmers IMO.

I have been using the Testors "Clear Parts Cement " for a long time without any disappointment. I would recommend giving it a try.

Future works very well also. Once it dries its very clear and hold the parts on good.

i tried using white glue, but it never seems to hold all that well. I havn't tried using future yet, but perhaps soon... right now i use good old fashioned tube testors glue..... hey it has to be good for something right??

I tried the MM Clear Parts Cement and Window Maker. And I have to say I wasn't impressed, but oh well. I use sparing drops of CA. And by sparing I mean sparing. A Little Dab'll Do Ya.
