Help! Any Suggestions?

Hi Everyone,


Can anybody suggest the right adhesive for sticking my stick on Number plate to the nose cone? :help:


The adhesive on the backing isn't good enough, it has to be a very strong adhesive in order to keep the edges flat!


Any help much appreciated.

Hi guys, thanks for replying!


Its a stick on number plate which reflective and right height numbers and letters etc.


I just need an amazing adhesive?


It will be near the front edge of the nosecone about an inch from

the edge. See attached pic.

Hi Dave,


I’m guessing normal super glue might be a bit much here? Would this react with paintwork or fibre glass.

PVA glue won’t be sticky enough.

I would try it on an non seen section first.


If all else fails then ‘Pritt-stick ‘ or ‘blu tac’ ;-)

Use some clear silicone. Will stick down the plate and can be removed at a later date without too much mess. use masking tape on the nose cone so when you wipe off any excess you get a nice seal between plate and nose cone with no mess :crazy:


or do as I did for 4 years and drive around with it in your boot so if you ever got stopped "it just dropped of, honest Guv :db: ". Never got a 2nd glance in 4yrs. Just fitted a temp one for MOt purposes 8)

The problem you're having is the vinyl won't conform to the complex curve of the nosecone, so I'm guessing airflow is getting under gaps and ripping it off?
