ARE Fiberglass Cap Issue


I just got a different truck. The cap that came with it is separating between the fiberglass and the aluminum rail. Anyone deal with this? What adhesive should I use between the rail and fiberglass?
I can get pics in the morning

If you want to finish the job, Id recommend lumber feet on a Thule rack and a car wash. I did mine at a fancy eco one and they even bought me a new cap. Cap place was 300 ft away and a junkyard was 150 ft away. Almost got the car behind me in line.

I ended up getting a body panel adhesive for it. Hopefully that'll hold along with a few rivets
