    Not suitable for the task.
    Better to have a good physical key on the surface . grind with a 120 grit hard sandpaper disc to leave a profile that feels something like 180 to 220 grit sandpaper.
    Then use a reinforced epoxy.
    Either Devcon special or steel equivalent or a rubber reinforced epoxy from a top brand.
    Maintain a minimum 1mm thickness of epoxy.

    Just finished off a blue painted shelf today that fits across poptop ledge for the TV and other bits - while its narrow, I made it high enough so I can still stand at the stove. Shelf stores behind the roof bed when not in use.

    Hi Leo,
    Nice shelf .:)
    You got a camera thing happening off that rear view mirror to make the shaft look short? & I'd love to have a look at that stove lid;) on the Rh of photo.
    Cheers?

    David - its a non standard rear view mirror. I still have the original. The stove lid is part of the original fitout that gave a heat shield to the fitted gas. A necessary compliance design. You can see it at Bus Stop

    Hi Chris

    12v and 240v Kogan. Been a great TV $139

    Antenna
    https://www.jaycar.com.au/outdoor-uhf-vhf-marine-tv-antenna-with-rotation-motor/p/LT3143

    You will need some sort of pole for the antenna

    The stove setup was part of the original fitout in my kombi. I store the TV in its cardboard box flat on my closed stove top, with an occy strap.

    Report to close out your good advice Dave... I installed 2 of these clips at the front edge internally before the trip, this was the last job before heading off!! I had passengers in the back monitoring as we headed off down the highway, particularly when being passed by trucks and gradually my confidence grew. With two surfboards on the racks for the whole trip the hold down seemed adequate and solid, thanks again for the tip.

    Happy with how neat they look also

    No unplanned take offs of wing (pop top) now;).
    Aaah....:D...relax David!!!
    Thanks
    Cheers

    Jethro, great job ,also you solved one of my problems , i did originally install them on all four corners outside, but when i fitted my annex i had to remove the two on the l/hand side and have not refited them, i have been pondering where to refit them although i never thought about the inside { old age kicking in :( }so thats my job for today ;), see never to old to learn .:)

    Hasn’t political correctness destroyed the English language !
    Once upon a time you could call a pouffe a poof without anyone getting their nose bent......
    Now, heaven help us if there is any innuendo :rolleyes:
    (.....and yes, I chose that word intentionally..........;))
    Cheers,
