3M actually has a product called panel bond. THe stuff is two part you`ll need a gun to apply it. The stuff is pretty strong. We use it in the body shop to put on 1/4 panels, door skins roofs,etc. 3M even gauranties it`ll be as stong as a weld in an accident. Most bodyshop supply stores should carry it. HTH.

DOMINION SURE SEAL
FUSOR
NORTON
SEM
U-POL
3-M
PLASTO MIX
DURAMIX

The above are companies that make all kind of TWO-PART
panel adhesives and bumper repair products.
They are all good but vary in price a good bit and the guns to use this product can cost $40-95.
The Two best are Duramix and Plastomix. (liquid polyurethane)

The biggest seller of this stuff in the country is Direct Access. (see web)
You might call him as he will point blank tell you what to use and stay away from. Also because he is so big he usually has a free gun promo with one of the companies.

Most important when bonding is use a slow enough product so you have time to adjust the panel. 45-60 minute working time is my favorite. To fast a product will skim and if any movement in panel adhesion will be broke and will not stick in that area.
With proper prep thats about the only thing that can go wrong.
Most of these bonding agents have 2200-2900 pounds per square inch of lap-shear strength compared to a certified welder of around 1300lbs per square inch. I'm not positive on the welder part as I got that info from an instructor so assume he was correct??!!
