Re: Adhesive for Plano Roof Walks

Is there a brand name for canopy glue that you prefer?  I've never used it before and my local hobby store owner gave me a puzzled blank stare when I attempted to enquire about it with him.

Canopy glue, best by far. CA will eventually let loose with expansion and contraction, canopy glue will stay glued, it's flexible. Voice of experience.

Looking for counsel . . .


A couple of securements:

Roofwalk to car

Latitudinals to brass subframe

Subframe to roofwalk


Plano recommends CA.  I’ve heard (read) that some prefer canopy glue.  I have tried tinning the brass subframes and then attempting to solder on the latitudinals, without notable success.  Stainless doesn’t like to be soldered to, apparently, unless I should use a different flux.  (?)


Recommendations welcome.
