It is very easy to use and it can hold a complete car body together if you so choose to. On a BMW 7 series the factory guidelines have you bonding the frame rail! We are talking FRAME RAIL, totally bonding it without a single weld.
Check out my son's science project from a few years ago. Welding or Bolting vs gluing panels on, a science project...

Your son should be about 16 now? I'll give him a science project for the high school science fair that will take the cake: ice nucleating bacteria using Pseudomonas syringae. Adding the bacteria to the water makes it freeze instantly! It's the only thing cooler than panel glue beating out a weld.

My son isn't the one that is going to do that, it would be my 12 year old daughter (12 yesterday), her and her friend won first in the science project competition last month with one on short term memory among different ages. This little girl is really something.

Did married men have the shortest (or most selective) memory?

But be sure to study it well, where are you using it? You can't do an open seam that is then going to be bondoed over. You want to have clean metal where it is applied ground with 36 grit (usually, read the tech sheet) and squeeze it out, then brush it over all the bare metal that will be touching, on both surfaces then put another little bead over it and clamp them together but not too tight, you don't want to smash all the adhesive out.

These are just a couple of notes, you really want to read the tech sheet on the exact product you are using and post back here so you can get any further info.

panel adhesive is great stuff. Clecos work really well with the panel adhesive sometimes, when it's really hot out you have to work pretty quick and the clecos go in and out fast when you're in a hurry before the glue sets up
