    Question What adhesive inside hull?

    Hi guys,
    Some of the cable routing clips have come off inside my hull, the black plastic things.....
    They have that green stuff on them that Polaris used to bond them to the hull, but has anyone got any suggestions as to what adhesive to use to stick them back on?
    I've tried a few things, but they keep falling off.
    Is there anything particular I need to do first to prep the hull for the adhesive? I'm stuck......... (I just wish the clips were!)

    I'll give it a try. Do I need to rough the surface first do you think?

    I have used gorilla glue before. Worked out great for me. You just have to find a way to hold it in place until it cures.

    I use permatex right stuff.....only way to go! Surface prep is essential whatever method you attempt. Superglue only works on mating parts, i.d take a pass on that. The original stuff is really expensive and comes in gallon containers (a bit overkill).

    I use prs on those pesky ultra 150 fuel filter holders..works Great..with proper cleaning of the hull (paint thinner)

    it does come in two can sizes..expensive and REALLY expensive..beware, you'll get ONE use out of it if you do not follow the can directions regarding cleanup.

    you _could_ go with jb weld..a bit messier as it tends to run in the hull if you are overly generous on the application

    I see several can sizes; 3, ounce, 4, 7, 7.5 plus some cartridges.

    Interesting using it as an adhesive, which is not mentioned at all on the product pages.

    DIRECTIONS: Clean and dry parts. Push nozzle to dispense the Right Stuff®. Apply a continuous 1/8"to 1/4"bead to one surface, surrounding all bolt holes. Assemble parts within five minutes, tightening bolts to recommended torque levels. Material will fill any surface imperfection. Equipment can be returned to service immediately. To reuse package, leave a 1/2"length of material extending out of the nozzle. Cured material will form a protective plug. To reuse, carefully remove the plug and dispense as before. NOTE: Not for use as a head gasket or on parts in contact with gasoline.
    Amazon has Permatex 25238 The Right Stuff Grey Gasket Maker, 3 oz. for about $14

    Liquid Nails or JB Weld or regular epoxy should work fine

    scuff up both mating surfaces with sand paper and clean well before bonding.

    the first time I used it, it was a real problem getting it off my finger and I thought....dandy adhesive. I tried contact cement and lots of other stuff, but it seems on problem hulls ( yanno the type..not cleaned since the last century, more oil in the bilge then the average storage tank..), nothing else would stick for too long.

    whatever works for you is fine..I always go with this stuff. I use it on ride plates too.

    the "protective" plug is kinda wishful thinking..sometimes it works..sometimes it don't.
