Re: Homemade navigation housing

I just did a bit more reading, it seems it can be glued, using Scotchweld DP-8005 or Lord Corporation's 7540-AB. A quick survey of Starboard glueing posts seems to indicate that it's difficult. Some say impossible, but those are the guys that I tend to like to prove wrong.

Maybe it's worth finding some scraps to test with before you begin to design/engineer your box?

I have heard of scuffing the material with some heavy sandpaper, and as well of hitting it lightly with a torch to sort of "open up" the edges. I'd be interested to know what you find out.
