Hi Gannu,

Would Araldite serve the same purpose as Bondtite?

Hi sunilsoft, Even I am facing same issue, not able to get Bondtite. Did you fix mirror mount using Bondtite and how is it holding up?

Regards.

Araldite requires a strong external force to keep the bonded surfaces pressed for over a day before you can use them. Bondtite OTOH sets in much faster.

I would rate Bondtite to be much better going by my experience of sticking the mount, the front parking sensor mounts etc. Ask hardware outlets that deal with glasses, mirrors etc. They may have Bondtite.
