I make the side plates with a notch > that fits over the trailing edge of th=

Clean the surface , use fine sandpaper to sand to the glass on the elevator b=

Justa quick question. Can anyone recommend a reliable adhesive to attach the Sparrow Strainers to the elevator considering the constant high loads. Thanks.
