Specific adhesives

Hello again We are looking for an adhesive that we can use to adhere the new wood to both foam and metal (under the driver's side window). Is there one out there that can be used for both? We have a 2000 Caribbean that was rotted out under the ds window. He has removed it rotted part, cleaned up the metal and has the new plywood (I think) ready to install.

I am thinking EXTERIOR Rated acrylic based? Maybe a "construction adhesive"? I do know that if you have foam, SOLVENT-BASED contact cements will MELT the foam and require them to be used separately and dried, then applied. (e.g. adhere Filon to Lauan) When repairing my overcab, bought three brands of acrylic in caulk tubes rated for foam, and all appeared EXPIRED/ DAMAGED/ DRIED OUT and/ or FREEZE DAMAGED; ended up w/ acrylic construction adhesive.

3M Super 77 Multipurpose Adhesive.
My first motor home was a learning experience. I had the pleasure(?) of replacing all the paneling in our Class C. Water infiltration had rotted it and I purchased it not knowing any better. I removed all the rotten paneling, stripping it down to the framework and insulation board. As indicated in the instructions, I sprayed both the new panel and the metal and insulation. Worked like a charm. When we upgraded several years later it still looked like new and all panels were still solidly adhered to the walls . 3M also makes a contact adhesive called Hi-Strength 90. Either will serve your needs however I preferred the Super 77.

Good Luck with your project.

I will be trying out FRP (fiberglass reinforced panel) adhesive tomorrow. I bought it at Lowes. It claims it can be used on foam board and "remains flexible" so it should hold up under vibrations of the coach. I'll update tomorrow night

Super 77 will stick virtually anything to anything! It is like duck tape and bailing wire!
