I guess this could be a repair and a tool review. After attempting to glue or plastic weld my door panels I knew I needed to take another route. Last week I was ordering a Perfect Panel Prep Tool from one of my favorite dealers. It occurred to me to check a hot stapler. I looked and they wanted almost $130. I looked on EBay and found the same item, different colors, minus the carrying case for $70. Mine came with 600 staples and the cutters to trim the staples. It all fit into a HF plastic ammo can. I used the wavy staples to join the bottom to the top. I used almost 20 and it took about that long to do the repair. At first I thought I had a defective item and then realized I hadn't seated the staple completely into the heat prongs. Once I figured that out all went well and I'm sure the panels will not separate easily anymore.
