I always use CA for photo etch and after becoming a little tired of pieces instantly fixing in the wrong place, or to my fingers, or my fingers fixing to my fingers, I decided to give something else a try.

Saw this new stuff from Loctite and it gives you a few seconds to position, easy to apply with a toothpick or whatever and STICKS!!!!!!!!! Well worth a look guys.

Hmmmm.... that sounds interesting Gary. Going to have to try that.

Do you know if it would fog headlight lenses?

Thanks for posting.

The glue is actually a CA so must have a drying retarder to keep it fluid for a few seconds.
tried it on a spare clear part and it appeared to be drying clear however when properly cured it fogged the part a little so not much use for screen, lenses etc.



after 60 seconds.



after 2 mins

Large tube though (20g)  Curt so if you compare it with a gel CA its not too bad.

Thanks for the pic Gary. True, that doesn't look too bad. I'll have to see where I can find it, should be able to get it where the rest of the Loctite is sold.

Loctite super glue has been my glue of choice for several years. For headlights and taillights I use clear fingernail polish and for windshields door and back windows I use Aleens clear gel tacky glue. It holds the glass in place well and if you do mess it up it's easily removed.

I started using the Go2 glue, the one pictured all the way over to the right. Great in PE, windows and lenses too.

Specifically this stuff:
