    Interesting. I kind of wondered if The J.B. would be sticky enough and permanent enough for good adhesion? Apparently the answer is 'yes', it is. --- Any particular type of J.B. Weld? Did you have to key the surfaces 1st (rough them up some) for adhesion?

    Glad to hear you got it sorted as Dan in his post is correct. There have been a few (rare) instances of the factory adhesive failing and the top shell when up shearing off in the wind and going flying down the road.

    Cadillac XLR

    2004 XLR


    It really worked great, but I got a private message stating that it might not hold when it gets really hot, but it is perfect so far. I used the metal JB, and did not prep the area, you can't tell that there was anything ever done to the top, it is sealed and lined up perfectly, no more wind sound that I had prior.
