Door/window trims on a coupe

Ive noticed my door trims have started to come off *again*

I re-glued them when i first bought the car back in July09.. and they have started to come off again.

Just wondering what sort of glue I should use?
Last time i just used super glue.. Held for ~2years ... But is there anything more strong?


thanks


Peter

Which trim is it? Pics? Ideally you should be using the correct glue for the material you're dealing with. Look into epoxy glue which is mixed just before you apply. Im told they can bond stronger than welds. I've heard that the Lotus Elise aluminium tub chassis is epoxy-bonded and the aluminium will deform before the epoxy bonds break.

Btw sedans dont need glue to hold it together

I just used every-day silicone on my trims about 6 months ago and it has held up 100% fine!!! Also, after you apply the silicone be sure to use electrical tape to hold it down firm for a couple days.
