Adhesive for mirror glass backing plate

Post by jps635 » Wed May 04, 2022 8:56 am

Drivers side mirror glass recently fell out after previous repair / glue failed. I have a new glass to stick on the plastic backing plate. Am looking for advice on best glue to use to fix the backing plate to the adjustable mounting base plate, via the 4 small lugs, so very little surface area and lots of vibration. Below photo shows the 4 locating lugs. Not sure what type of plastic

Gorilla Glue recently came out with a major strong contact cements. It is in a spray can for sure and maybe as a brush on.

I’d go with Gorilla Glue too. They have recently launched one which is water activated, but needs to be left for several hours.
