Windshield Adhesive Great For Many Uses
Roger Gutschmidt turned a 3M product called Urethan Windshield Adhesive into a multi-use product.

"it's made primarily for adhesively bonding windshields into frames on cars, tractors and combines, but I use it for a lot of other mending jobs as well," he says. "It sticks well to rubber, concrete, plastic, wood, leather, steel, aluminum, and glass, of course. Just the other day I repaired my work boots with it. The soles were coming loose from the rest of the boot."

Another thing it works great for, according to Gutschmidt, is tires. If he has a break or cut on the sidewall or bottom, he uses the adhesive to close the gap.

"If you have a scar on a tire surface, you can also mend it with this product so it's undetectable," he points out. "It dries to the consistency of rubber. Or if you have a pair of overshoes, chest waders, etc., just smear it on the rip or puncture, and it will be there to stay. The boots won't leak. It's a wonderful product and I've used it for years."

Urethane Windshield Adhesive comes in a caulking tube and costs about $10. It's available online from any auto supply store such as NAPA.
