Re: [DMCForum] Wood panel



If those panels are glued in that tight I would suspect that they have some
structural purpose as well as forming the shelf.  When you go to put it back
in make sure that you bed it in with a good epoxy.  I would use some Plexus
www.itwplexus.com  which is one of the best things you can get to bond
anything to FRP.  Jim can tell you how lotus uses it to bond fiberglass to
Al, and how it is close to impossible to get apart. The marine industry uses
it all the time to glue structural components together on boats.

I have all the glue/panel removed now. The bare wood you see is the
panel itself, the access door is in my trunk.

My wood was rotted so i removed layer by layer (sometimes a few layers
at a time). Once I got down to the glue, i grabbed some large pliers.
There were areas of the glue not stuck, i'd just grab hold and slowly
pull away. I did hear a few noises where i thought the fiberglass was
breaking at first, but it was just the glue letting go.
