Shoe Goo vs. Liquid Nails???
Anyone who has bought more than 1 HPI Cuda or Mustang has discovered the benefits of Shoe Goo. However, one of the downsides is that it seems to react negatively with some paint (such as Testors Model Masters paint).
Originally I thought the issue was that the paint didn't have time to properly cure before applying the Shoe Goo. I tested that theory this morning with a body that was painted months ago. The Shoe Goo still reacted poorly with the Model Masters paint that had been covered by Pactra Sprint white.
Recently I was in a local hardware store (Menards) and they had a sale on Liquid Nails - Small Projects & Repairs Adhesive Clear LN-275 (http://www.liquidnails.com/products/...p?productId=48
). The tube looked similar to the tubes of Shoe Goo and with a rebate it was only a $1.
So far I've only tested applying the Liquid Nails to a beat up Camaro body. I tend to beat the head lights in and eventually crack that part of the body. I applied a liberal amount of the Liquid Nails into the corner of the inside of the body and let it dry. What I noticed is that it dries faster and firmer. This may not be a bad thing for the front of a 'Cuda. I also tested applying it to the section of my body that had Model Masters paint without any noticeable problem. Shoe Goo seems to melt paint. The Liquid Nails did not reactive negatively with the Pactra White or Model Masters AMC Big Bad Blue.
I will do some more testing, but it looks like this may be an option for me for the next 'Cuda body that I paint.
