What kind of glue to fix separating seam on convertible top?
I like a nice two part epoxy , like jb weld or kind get a fast set one too?
Use "Rhino Glue" brand glue. it's only available online i think. very good glue. like super glue only better. no expansion like "Gorilla Glue". Position the top in a half-up position so the material is relaxed and the seam is accessible from the outside and inside behind the headliner. Look on the inside of the seam behind the headliner. There is actually glue in there too holding the overlapped seam down so it doesn't bulge out when the top is "up". . Align the seam as it was originally (have someone help hold things together while you apply glue and clamps). Apply the glue, and clamp the entire length of seam you are gluing for best results. Do it in 4- 6 inch stages if you have a long repair it takes time getting things lined up and clamped properly. just be patient and give yourself plenty of time to do it right. like a few hours. I did mine on a 2001 VW Cabrio on the "corners" of the top and across the back and its held perfectly for 2 years in Ohio all season weather. Rhino Glue is good stuff if used properly.
