    I used AK’s stainless bracket, with two CSK screws in the drain channel and some P40 filler against the body

    I also used AK's bracket, mark where I wanted them then roughed up back of stainless steel. drill a couple of holes then used 'sticks like shit' from screw fix. then pop riveted through drain channel.
    I have used this stuff before to glue on panels on Land Rovers. you must let it go off for a good 24 hrs. Also used it to fix the wood that goes under the doors in the body and for the wood for the door catch.

    Every adhesive I tried that’s applied through a mastic gun failed eventually against the fibreglass. P40 was the only thing that lasted.

    I've used plexus MA 300 to bond big heads to the body and they are not coming off.
    I was planning on using it on the AK boot brackets.
