Title: Weatherstrip adhesive
Post by: Alan on March 03, 2011, 09:27:11 AM
I'm replacing my trunk seal and wanted to use the best adhesive. Is loctite any better than 3M? Is the 3M yellow the same as the black?

I have personally had good luck with the black 3M stuff, but I don't know the difference between them.

They're both the same except for the color

The yellow is known as "Gorrlila Snot" I like the black better. It seems to me to tack up better. Also if you get a little too much on it doesn't show up as much. Just my 2 cents.

Oddly enough I agree with you Chris.  The black seems to be better.  Maybe because it is more viscous than the "snot".  (I held back on that.)  But 3M told me they were the same.

I use the black....it's a different type of glue than the yellow now....it was reformulated and now is much better. I have to stick the door gaskets on a 1950's Mercedes Gullwing we've been upholstering  and will be using the 3M black....it's a black car with red leather and a tan cloth headliner so I need to keep excess glue from ruining the cloth. It isn't as runny as the yellow stuff. Plus it sticks to leather really well.

Gorgeous... I gotta see this shop someday, dreaming is free at least.

The old Benzes were amazing. I had a '60 220 SE Fintail,  Black
and Red just like that. You could drive it at 85 all day long and get
20 mpg, little 2.2 6 cyl, mechanical fuel injection and 4 spd column
shift. Ran like a Swiss watch and felt like a tank. I wouldn't give 2
cents for a new Benz though.

As far as I'm concerned, the early 60's cars were the best built
