    Hey guys!

    I got a frantic call from my sister a few minutes ago -- She apparantly managed to break her 92 Buick LeSabre's passenger side door mirror clean off her door while backing into the garage. She tells me that it was glued on from the factory, not held on with screws. Since she was planning on coming down south to the farm where I am right now, I was wondering what type of glue a guy should get her to buy so I can fix it when it gets here.

    I was thinking some super strength two part epoxy should work fine... What do you guys think?

    If you use an epoxy like that I wouldn't plan on removing the mirror again without taking a bunch of paint with it. That said, I would rough up the area where the mirror attatches and use epoxy.

    I would use silicone caulk.
