What glue for sticking diesel loco windows back in?
« on: May 14, 2018, 08:04:16 pm »
Hello people
I'm just embarking on a repaint of a 37. I removed the windows for painting.
The last time I did a repaint I used cheapo superglue to stick windows back in, but ended up with a frosted effect - not really what I was looking for. Just wondering what other people use?

cheers

I use Slo-Zap.

Using the end of a cocktail stick I put a very small amount of glue on the plastic below the window and then position. By putting the glue at the bottom I find when sliding the window in place the glue doesn't spread and cause frosting.

Occasionally I've had to repeat the process as I've been too sparingly with the glue.

Canopy glue another good one for such tasks - but as with all it must be used sparingly!

Plasti-zap cyano doesn't cause fogging. I've just glazed a 16mm garden railway coach using it.

Of course, given how many different plastics there are the only sound advice is to try on a sample first, but that may be impossible in your case.

The frosting it caused by the glue vaporising and having no where for the vapours to escape to. Super Glue is notorious for messing up windows.
