Flush LED lenses...

This is my first post on here. Ive tryed searching around with no luck on this one. I've got 12" LED taillights with the clear lexan lens that you epoxy into your bodywork and sand down and clear over them. The question is, what are you guys using for epoxy on thoses lenses. Im sure almostany 2 part epoxy would work but I just thought I'd throw out the question of what you guys that have used this type of flush light that works well. Any thoughts?
Thanks.
Mike

I used a 3m epoxy structural adhesive and it worked fine, I installed it and used 3m ultrapro urethane seam sealer to fill the hairline void between the opening and the lens. Then primered and final sanded untill all was flush. I masked the lens untill the last coat of color went on and just misted the lens, then cleared the car. It was well worth the effort and the light is invisable untill the brakes are applied. Take your time cutting the slot, use a file to final fit the lens for a good fit. Bob
