Headlight and driving light brackets

While traveling down the interstate I hit a piece of plywood right in the middle of my front. It did not break the front plastic but did bow it which caused the driving lights and headlight assemblies to separate from the front plastic. Can these be reglued back on.

The front is fiberglass ... tougher than plastic. Yes, the brackets can be re-glued ... the original was most likely an epoxy. Getting to them can be difficult depending on the particular coach you are working with. It might be easiest to have a body shop that deals with fiberglass do it as they should have a glue that will work.

Yes they can be reglued. We had the right side headlight bucket come loose on our 2001 Adventurer. I cleaned off all the old adhesive and used SEM Weld-Bond 35937 epoxy to reglue it.

It's 2 part epoxy used by body shops to secure plastic/fiberglass panels to metal substrates. I did the job in 2004 and it was still holding tight when we traded off the motorhome in 2012 with over 100,000 miles on the odometer.

There may be other methods, but this is what the professionals use and it was more than up to the job.
