Reattaching underhood structure

I have a hood that has underhood structure that has separated. It was glued on like most hoods are. What would be good glue to reattach it back on there?

anti flutter foam or urethane 2 part seam sealer. Some people use the expandable foam that you can use for door beams but you have to estimate how much it will expand on you or you can cause a teepee effect.

When doing this you have to make sure it really gets in there as opposed to just being on the outside where you can see it.

If your NOT taking out the old stuff and just want to reattach it you can use super fast urathane for gluing in windshields...worked for me.

You don't want to use JB weld, it's too hard. Originally as Henry said it was "anti flutter" foam, a soft foam to allow movement. "Gluing" it to the skin is not good because they move indepentantly from one an other a little, you need to allow that movement.

Thanks. I just wanted something that would hold on there. Hood I got is like 20 year old but all of the underside is detached so I just want to make sure it won't happen again.

This is true and exactly how I do it on door skins. I cut the foam from the skin, then put a dab of urethane on it when I put the new skin back on.
