55' Chevy cast metal to plastic glue
Posted by Gunsmith70 on Wednesday, March 21, 2018 6:53 PM

I'm building a 55' Chey pickup. I did not install the stock motor, but instead, I put in a 350. It's one of those cast metal after market parts. My question is, what is the best adhesive/glue to use to secure the cast metal motor to the plastic chassis? I used zap-a-dap stuff and it doesn't hold very well .

5 minute epoxy would be my go-to for anything that large made of different materials.
