    @ChrisBcritter: I ordered some of these and they work perfectly. I drilled a .040 hole and I soldered paperclip wire for a bracket. Painted the inside of a small headlight lens with amber fingernail polish. Glued small size headlight lens in place using clear 5 min epoxy. looks great. Thanks.

    This is the glue I am referring to. Most of the writing on the container is in Thai. http://www.ebay.com/itm/TOA-Glue-Latex-Hygienic-Adhesive-Premium-Quality-General-Purpose-4-OZ-/182342857052 . It has the same smell and consistency as Elmer's Glue.It does work for installing windshields. Dries clear.  It says nothing about PVA. Only says Hygienic Latex Adhesive.  I have not found Elmer's Glue here in Thailand.
    Tacky Glue...I'll have to research that.
    Thanks for the replies.

    White latex Glue
    Using white latex adhesive to glue in windshields, must the paint be scraped off of the styrene or does the glue stick better to the paint (lacquer)?

    Chris, That's what I'm looking for I think. Will search ebay shortly. Thx to everyone for the positive ideas.

    GTX6970, Bill. I can't refuse an offer like that. I'm in Thailand, but have an American shipping address. I'll send you message directly. Thank you.

    When I glue them or don't glue them they seem fine at first, but then after a few hours the tire peels off from the rim. Often this is when no backing plate is used at all.Like when a tire is mounted to a body as a spare like on a Jeep. I'll try the thick super glue again.
