Best product to bond light Boxes to Fiberglass Fenders?

I had some flush mounted lenses made for my Car by Lambert Enterprises, and I have to bond fiberglass boxes t the backside of my Wescott rear Fenders. The Boxes do attach at a 90 degree angle to the Fender-

What Product would you use for this? Vette Panel bond/adhesive? Kitty Hair? I was hoping that I wouldn't have to break out the Fiberglass/Mat-how about Lord Fusor #148/148?

Shine,

I was hoping that you would chime in here-I have already cut the holes and bonded the lenses to the Fenders (using Lord Fusor plastic bonding adhesive)-Lambert sent some fiberglass boxes (that I'm sorry to say that I don't have pictures of) that I have to bond to the fenders-what I didn't mention is that the LED's are mounted to aluminum that is screwed to the back of the Boxes and then siliconed to seal (and for servicing the LED's), so I think I may want to mount these a little more permenently-

as long as you have access it would be fine to use fusor or vette panel adhesive. kinda figured there was more to it.

Last week I ordered some Vette Panel Adhesive (as per some of your Posts), but just didn't know if it was strong enough to hold the Boxes, so I read Evercoat's product sheet and got scared-sounds like it will, so thanks!
