Default Front Clip Adhesive?

For my 69, What is the best glue to re-glue the inner fender panels and the front clip back onto the body? Nervous about some of the new stuff that would be impossible to get back off in the future ( hopefully never will have to do this again!!)

You can use most anything with stock 69 panels. If they are newer replacements you might need the newer epoxies or urethane.

I used Lord Fuser 127EZ.

Adhesives have come a long way in the last 40 years so figured I would use the modern stuff.
Parts can be separated with heat and a sharp blade.

I'm looking for the right adhesive too. I've got to glue my nose and fire wall back onto the car in a few weeks.

I'm gonna keep an eye on this tread for sure!!
