cheers all
It depends on what you are doing with it. I used it to cover a full side section like you would with teak veneer. In this case a glue is the choice. 5200 is a very mean glue and a messy over kill for these panels.

Re: Trim for smaller replacement portlights

I spent 43,000 hours over twenty-four years building movie sets, mostly on location and the rule is that if you can"t hide it, feature it. All kinds of elegant treatments can be done - have fun with it!

Re: Trim for smaller replacement portlights

White electrical tape, 1 inch wide works well for purely cosmetic trim. Works well for years even if regularly wet.
