defroster tab repair adhesives or solder repair?
I've "fixed" my passenger side rear tab several times now - the second time it broke, it tore the solder pad right off. Since then, I've tried the permatex repair kit (junk) as well as trying to solder it. The trouble with soldering is that I tried using 60/40 rosin core solder and it definitely doesn't stick well. I was going to try silver-bearing solder but I'm not sure what type of flux I should use - acid vs rosin. Otherwise, I always get nervous when I hit the glass with a 300W solder gun, so I thought I'd give the adhesives a shot again.
so far, these two look to be the best shot - I know loctite makes a kit, but it's basically the same thing as the permatex kit - rear-view mirror adhesive with small bits of copper and I've tried it twice now. So far, soldering has given me the best results, but I know I'm not making a solid connection and risking my rear window shattering everytime I heat it up.
