Case Savers... what are you using to stick 'em on?

Recommended Posts

Hiya,

One of mine decided to pop off today. lt looks like the previous owner smeared some kind of goo onto the case and then stuck the plate on. Obviously whatever he used didn't work all that well.

l went to the local DIY shop and found hi temp double-sided tape. l also saw standard silicone that is good to 150 degrees celsius. Anybody have a recommendation?

Thanks!

the brand doesn't matter as much as the adhesive itself.search for high temperature Room Temperature Vulcanizing(RTV) silicone adhesive suitable for aerospace or automotive applications.Dow-Corning,G.E.,Permatex,etc.,etc..any will work fine.

I just grabbed a tube of RTV silicone...

If you can't find that, and seriously never want to peel them off again, go for some Shoe Goo II. That stuff sticks like nothing I've ever seen. Nearly impossible to remove....

I used Ultra Grey. It has a much higher temp rating and is very oil resistant. Plus, it's the same color as the cases and armor.

Or use something like JB Weld if you want them to stay forever...

Or drill a couple of holes and use some self tappers :eek::banana:

the silicone also provides some cushion in the event of a hard hit to the case saver
