What's everybody using with their white Fiberglass Reinforced Panel (FRP) pebble-surfaced paneling? The recommended adhesive is not available in small quantities. The surface is basically the same as Bondo (you can tell by the aroma when you cut it. What sticks best?

Stephen,

I always use contact cement when applying FRP. It comes in pint and quart cans at your neighborhood hardware store. You coat BOTH surfaces with a foam brush and then let that DRY. After both contact surfaces are dry (I know, this seems counterintuitive, but trust me on this one!), stick them together and rub to work out any bubbles. CAUTION: You will NOT be able to pull them back apart once they are contacted so get it right the first time!! 8O
