  • E36 interior woes

    My coupe’s rear interior panels fell apart today. I tried gluing them together with some two stage epoxy, but that failed miserably. Is there any way to repair these, or should I try to find new ones?

    My front door cards aren’t far behind, so any info is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Try black RTV sealant. Provides more flex that a rock solid epoxy.

      Exactly this. Epoxy will always fail for parts like this. Applies to the front door panel as well.

          I've had great success with the 3M window weld...same stuff they use to put your windshield in place

            The windshield weld seems awesome. I think the epoxy might have worked but you need good contact during curing.

              Rigid epoxies do not work for stuff like this. The adhesive must have flex.
