Best glue?

Recommended Posts

The black trim around the edge of the baggage compartment of my plane is falling off  from time to time. I'd like to epoxy it back but want to be sensitive of the composite structure. I have some west system epoxy, but that seems slightly overkill. Any recommended adhesives that are composite and foam core friendly?

I would have to check mine, but if it is like the trim around the door it has a metal insert molded inside. If that is the case you can remove it and reset the gripping tension. To do that you can lay it on a wood block and smash it closer together with a mallet. Just don't go overboard and smash it flat like a pancake.
