Marty, same bloke  :youbeauty
Its depends on what bib material you are using and how much fiddling you want to do with clean up.
For alloy bibs I tend to glue them in after final sanding of the body. I'll lightly sand the alloy both sides with 120grit and wash off with thinner to remove any mill lube, then spray with etch primer. Once etch is dry continue with normal paint routine.

For Poly carb, I will dry fit the bibs to the body, use a scalpel to cut and remove any of the protective plastic covering that will be inside the timber. Leaving the plastic sheet on the exposed portion makes glue clean up a breeze and then peel off the plastic when all is dry.

Ohh and drill 2 x 3-4mm holes through the bib to allow glue to bond all the way through.

G'day Marty just saw your post here re glue etc.

Get yourself some Z-Poxy 30 Minute from ebay. half the price of Araldite and just as good.
l use it for all prototypes and short run glue-ups , has a working life of about 15mins then starts to gel.
Comes in two plastic bottles with spouts , very easy to use.
Araldite has a 30 minute work life , but is expensive , even when bought in bulk.

Hope this helps,

Barney.

Definitely support the use of Z-Poxy 30 mins over 24 hour Araldite - it's just as strong, dries crystal clear, is easier to clean up and is cheaper.

I was thankfully put onto it by Lofty from Esoteric lures and to date it's performance has been faultless !!


Cheers

theres quite a few guys use the zpoxy ,I believe Wal from illusion lures uses it too and here is another guy who's been making lures a long time (just like Mr Barnard and Mr Dunn) must be something in it. :youbeauty
