Hello,
I am trying to attach the rear view mirror to the windshield on my 70 Cougar. I have tried Permatex rear view mirror adhesive 3 times and it will not set up. Have done exactly as directions have said. The stuff will just not set up. Has anybody used anything else that works? Any advice? This is kind of driving me nuts! On a side note, I ended up getting my radiator repaired at a little shop near home for $30.00. Man, that was cool!!
Thanks all!

Years ago, I used to work for Safelite Auto Glass. I can tell you the mirror adheasive we used was much better than what is available over the counter. See a local glass shop and have them glue it up there. When I worked there, Safelite would do it for free.

If you haven't already done it, the mirror itself has to be removed from the mounting bracket and the braket glued to clean glass (mounting bracket has to be completely clean and smooth also). Put two stips of masking tape over the bracket for a few hours until the Permatex sits up. Then reattach the mirror head.

I tried several brands that didn't work until I discovered "Rear View Mirror Adhesive" from Cyclo. This is an American product so you should be able to find it easily. It does exactly what all the others said they would do but didn't.

Did you scrape the old glue off with a
razorblade, then clean with acetone or laq.
thinner?
