    i tried gorilla glue, too brittle and came apart easily. Now use some stuff from halfords, can't remember the name, but it says it glues most things. I.ll try and find out for you.

    Evo stick - serious glue. Bonds plastic, waterproof and a good temperature range.
    Mine's been on a month now and is OK. Only time will tell though.

    Keyed both surfaces too!

    Oh, I've been told araldite becomes brittle with age.
    I did use silicon to glue my lhs mirror back on, but that's a greater surface area.

    Araldite for me.

    Glued back my front griffin after painting the front V black sapphire.

    Has not moved at all in a year.

    Have to leave it on for at least 15 mins to set and it stinks but does the job nicely.

    Around a fiver or so from halfords and will last you years
