Delaminating Tailgate

Postby Rob_Wood on Sun, 14 Feb 2021 11:27 +0000

Hiya, at the top of the tailgate where the 3 sheets are spot-welded to each other the spot welds are peeling apart.. No coin for panel beater stuff, thinking either pop rivets or screws & nuts.
Any thoughts, comments or suggestions? Maybe even other solutions?

Araldite ? Yes - I'm serious. The slow curing version and good prep is worth a try.

I was thinking of throwing some liquid nails in with the rivets or screws & nuts. Only cos it's a bit more flexible than other bonding agents once set. Thoughts???

Ended up just using staino' pop rivets and NO goo. Held like a dream, let's see what the lifespan is.
