For Hard Body Drag Cars, What Glue Do You Use to Glue Painted Parts?

Recommended Posts

I'm about to assemble my first slot car drag car. I've done two NASCAR's so far and they are straight foward. The only thing needed to glue after paint is the Windshield.


But what about a hard boy drag car? I have a 1969 Camaro SS. I glued the hood before painting. Now I have both the front and rear metal bumpers. I know people in the display world often use the Clear Parts Cement since it dries clear and won't eat into the paint if it rains. Could I still use that? Will it be strong even to withstand repeated passes on the 1/24 scale quarter mile?

Or should I use the Revell model cement that welds the parts together?

I know this car will be reset but I still want it to look somewhat presentable.

I use shipping tape and a thin coat of shoe goo on my hard body hobby stocks makes a unbelievably really strong bond 



For stock cars, I use shoe goo but less parts on those compared to drag cars. Plus they are getting banged around.
