Exclamation Case mod help

Hi everyone, first post here but by no means new to the computing world.....

I was wondering if you could help me out by perhaps showing me what kind of glue or fixant is necessary for glueing metal (steel) to plastic (acrylic).

This is an upcoming UT2003 mod im doing, ive just never had to glue plactic to metal before, usually just plastic to pastic

Any help of other hints that can help, perhaops a website that can explain in more detail..... thanks davebyrne

maybe you could use araldite, or possibly the no-nails type of glue from hardware stores (best if it's the clear stuff IMO)

As long as you're good/careful with it, I would rough up the metal and plastic a little. Apply some gorilla glue... I know, some of you may laugh, but the stuff expands into the small grooves and is tough! If you don't like the sound of that, try some liquid nails.
