    You might try CLR. I just had good success with it removing a multi-year buildup of oxidized minerals, though non-automotive, that nothing else would touch. But as the label says, test in an...

    You might try Gorilla Epoxy. It's fairly viscous. While it will run a little, it cures really quickly so I'd expect no problem for that job.

    Possibly it's because the rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain? ;)

    Sorry. Couldn't resist. :)

    It's really more a matter of hours, rather than miles, and it's also dependent on how many times you restart the car. My wife is the primary driver of ours, and with the virus situation and us being...

    I'm betting kragmeister is a good Pennsylvania "Dutch"man, who tends to do things right, follow through and tie up loose ends. :)

    As I said, seriously, the entire assembly is designed so groceries can be secured behind it using the net.

    Unfortunately, one problem with the execution is that the carpet mat on top of the flap...

    IIRC it's for groceries., i.e., with the floor raised as in your photo, groceries or similar held in place behind the net. Or fish. :)

    You might give DAP Rapid Fuse All Purpose a try. It's in the cyano-acrylic family, but more of a gel, and works a lot better than the typical "super glue". If you hold it under pressure for 30...
