regluing door panels fiasco
Can somebody please help me. I tried to glue my door panels but failed. I used 100% silicone (in a tube) like I was told to use by a auto restoration company. 1st: I had a difficult time of it trying to remove the existing MB glue and prepping the pieces to be glued. what is a good solvent for do use?
2: My silicone set up so quickly. Do I need to glue the pieces and just let them sit for a couple hours before reinstalling. I had a devil of a time trying to reattach the panel to the door without having the newly glued pieces completely detaching from each other.
Any thoughts on all of this will be most appreciated.
