I'm ready to install the rubber molding on to my Lexan windshield outer rim for my WLA. I am not sure what the rubber formula is but assume it is a modern compound since it is aftermarket. I had to go with aftermarket on the windshield and molding since no oem or nos ones were usable. I've found several adhesives for Lexan but none note bonding rubber to the Lexan. None also do not state not too. Anyone have advice as to what adhesive to use which will not eat up either the rubber or the Lexan ? Thanks, Pa

Loctite Super Glue Ultra Gel Control did the job.

Pa, I meant to lead you to; CARBOLINE CO -- NEOPRENE ADHESIVE F-1 -- 8040-00-181-7712 , I have a small tube, But Uncle Sam is protecting the commom guy from obtaining it. MEK is in it, yet one can buy thinned down mek at home improvment stores and auto paint shops. I've had MEK Technical melt the broken plastic encased consumer products and the bond was stronger than the unbroken part just by wetting the broken edges with a wood tooth pick.
I can not find a consumer source, I rant because of it. I want another tube of F1.
