    Best stuff to use to glue down Tunnel Reinforcement?

    I got a tunnel reinforcement! ( not an R&D )

    This is what i use.I costs about $40.00 in epoxy but its super strong.I use the 2000 psi strength. I mix up all these into a plastic bowel,then pour it over the tunnel,then use a 2" paint brush to evenly coat it.This has a 30 minute set time.I have used it on my 06' and believe me,this stuff is strong.I have my own reasons for NOT using 5200,BUT i will NOT get into it.Just sharing what i use and what works great for me.

    5200 remains flexable after it dries, wouldn't you want it to be as rigid as possible?

    i guess it is a big debate. the R&D piece is rigid mine has worked great, some use marine tex, and 50 millon other things. it boils down to what you wanna use. the amount of flex is a interesting thought
