Dave, what's the application?

I have some G/Flex epoxy from West System (Gougeon Brothers from Bay City, MI) that will bond darned near anything to darned near anything else for ever and ever and ever.

Too much perhaps?

It's all great fun until someone glues his forehead to a tabletop (Tim Allen style) :mrgreen:

Thanks for the nice words Dave - really nice.
I found out during the weekend that I should be a sales rep for those visor mounted sunglasses........

Awesome stuff Brian. I used so little of it I had my doubts, but after a full 24 hr cure I couldn't break it apart. Keep in mind what I bonded was two pieces of carbon fiber less than an eight inch thick and about 2 1/2" long. Thanks again, see you next race weekend.
