    Long time no see
    well it has been 10 wks since I have been able to get on the board since I started driving truck, I know we have truck guys on here so here is my 2013 International Prostar In Ohio and once I get the hang of this I will be building in my truck and I can't wait to get back to building again.

    Sorry for being MIA
    Well as of right now I am 5 wks into Tractor Trailer school and it's kicking my butt, I have driven straight truck for 15 yrs and I had to get out of the kids game since I blew the shoulder twice in one yr so this is a new career for me .....when Things slow down I'll be back around .......so you guys play nice in the sand box and I will catch you on the flip flop

    Well like everyone has said ..Elmers or carpenters glue work the best and you can thin it down with water and use it like a sanding sealer too and at all joints as a filler bead.
