Default 6271 adheasive

I have a small shop at home where I fix racing cars and my go to resin is a local So. CA company PTM&W (I use there stuff for all my infusions). I called Scot the tech rep and he asked a lot of questions about my application,

I ordered PTM&W 6271 and I have not looked back.
It comes in A&B 1 qt. each 50/50 under $100 shipped next day.

my application gluing strakes back on a GTLM 488 Ferrari and fixing PWC cars.

Today I am working on Giancarlo Fisichella's car

I've been using 3m dp125 gray and it seems to be working fine. I'd like to compare it to aradlite 2015 or something else though. I'm bonding aluminum to epoxy/carbon

PTM&W has a new adhesive on the shelf for co bonding dissimilar material. more info call Scot (@ PTM&W) tell him I mention it. he is the guy that does the R&D for certs.

Very nice Tom. Those strakes are just edge bonded? The original epoxy joints failed? Is there a trick to making these stronger so they don't fail?

Does aluminum need to be treated with anything before bonding?

Tom what's going on with the step in the diffuser? Is it vented as a double diffuser, or is it really a blockage and a 2 tier arrangement?
