attach metal mesh to plastic

Recommended Posts

i have a rosewill blackhawk case.  it has a mesh front bezel. i added a storage tray to one of the 5.25 drive bays. the front plate of the tray is this shiny black that i really didnt like so i thought i could take the old mesh drive bay cover and attach it to the front plate.  it fit around the front plate perfectly, but now the tray won't close because of the added thickness. 

 

so i started cutting...cutting the front plate a little, then the mesh cover a little, then the front plate some more.  you get the picture.  i couldnt get it quite right.  i thought before i cut any more i figured i would see if there might be a better way to affix this.

 

i was thinking just some sort of clear epoxy but not sure how that would look through the mesh holes.

 

any suggestions?  i can attach some pics if needed.

 

thanks

That's going to be tricky to glue without showing. I would think JB Weld would hold it fine,just rough up the plastic and use 4 spots of glue on top edge and bottom 2 corners. Once in place use a toothpick to clear adhesive out of the holes before it dries. If it's going to be painted I would sand both pieces with a scuff pad before putting in place to be sure paint will stick on both surfaces.
