    I know pretty sure the guys at homemadeturbo used some jb weld before a bov stem. I use it for everything, from reinstall my ignition so I welded it into place, the sides atleast, and I used it on countless occasions for a broken exhaust hangar and a leak. It works pretty decent I think, my tip is let it sit for a long ass time at a good medium temp around 60 degrees.

    i only use that shizzel for emergencies and stuff. always keep some in the car. take what you need to be welded to a muffler shop or something, theyll prolly do it for cheap.

    BUMP

    Just used jb weld to attach my new shift knob.

    bought a shift knob, and i did not like the way it was sitting. too high for my liking.
    so i took the grinder, chopped off 1 1/4" inches off the stick shift, then slapped some jb weld onto it and
    the shift knob.


    jb weld to cars is like duct tape to tweekers.
