    Default Glue or Welding?

    Hello, I'm building a RC car trailer in one tenth scale. It uses aluminum planks in a ladder frame. Should I weld or glue the strips of aluminum. If blue what kind of glue should I use?

    Sorry just saw your posting. I'd glue it using a product called Sikaflex, it's a urathane based product and will hold indefinitly.

    Perhaps you could solder the aluminum together, it would be plenty strong enough and reversible if needed... and cheap too
