    Awesome proven information Cuppa mate and keep trucking outback strong good man!
    My short term memory has been jogged thanks to your kind post of ‘Sikaflex 252’ being the hero to date for sure.
    A ‘Big4’ (Winnebago style camping) neighbour recently had drop down side tables “glued” on all over its smooth etched exterior by professionals with 252.
    Still does slightly worry me a bit as cool/clean rooms and ‘Sika’ was a past life gig of mine with customer needed time logged maintenance regimes an absolute must.
    Just not sure how Burk & Public (Googled) warranties explain long term harsh usage good man!

    Mate of mine built his motor home body on the back of a 4wd Canter entirely of fibreglass sandwich panel. All glued with Sika, not a single mechanical fastener. Drove it overland to the uk via China, Mongolia, all the ‘Stan’s etc, then to Africa, & then back to Australia. 3 years full time on the road, taking the worst that could be thrown at it. Various repairs along
    the way to vehicle, but not a single repair needed to the motor home body.

    Absolutely truly awesome Rig Cuppa mate thanks again. Only meant in regards Sika and its full rooftop exposed 100kmph capabilities longterm and when exactly to schedule a reassessment over the years.
