Tricky glue job, please help.

My rib has a section at the back tube which attaches top of the internal floor seat mounts. Its coming away, but its only 1/8th the way along and it has many overlapping points so i dont want to unglue the whole tail end just for this minor section (it just keeps the raised bench seat mount glued to the tube as such).

Is there a way to use a non 2 part glue so I can get the glue all the way into the crevice and join it to the hypalon and fiberglass on the seat?

I was thinking something like bostik super contact bond. We have that in Aus.

2-part will entail the same problem getting it in there as 1 part. The 2-parts are mixed, then applied.

try aquasure its a dry suit repair glue used to over coat the neoprene joints,or holes.
single part in a tube keep in the fridge after opening lasts longer.
squeeze into the pocket keep it pressed down with weight till dry, very strong stuff [clear liquid]

regards jeff

I've had good results with clear 2C epoxy. There is no solvent involved, so you don't need to keep the gap open, but the material must of course be clean and dry. To keep both sides together during the curing time (5-10 minutes) I use duct tape.
