    im getting around to insulating and paneling my 68 g10 and id like to reglue some of the ribs to the sheetmetal thats long since separated and rattles, i dont like the idea of welding them...ive thought of maybe liquid nails or some sort of silicone...something that stays soft..any suggestions?

    Just about all of my cargo area ribs had become unglued on one of the mating surfaces and light rust was starting on the surface where the glue had been. I used a product from my local automotive paint store. Not sure of the actual brand name, but it's a product called "Panel Bond". It's made just for this purpose. It was a two part adhesive that swirled together down the spout and came out mixed.

    I was gonna say the same, Seamsealer, NAPA sells it too in caulk gun tubes.  Supper strong, flexible enough, what the factories used...sets quick too but pricey, about $16 a tube but one tube will do a whole van and then some.  Also great for small non-structural rust repairs underneath/floors etc. without welding.  I held several small patch plates over holes in the floor in place with this stuff, back of rockers and behind the front grill area too with great results. A great alternative I used for similar work is PL-400 construction adhesive, Home Depot, Lowes, etc...nice and thick. tacky and bonds to anything, would work great for the ribs and is cheaper than seamsealer....
