Camper Shell Mods

Hey, I got a fiberglass camper shell a while ago, I like to sleep in it, but I cant seem to get anything to stick onto the fiberglass. I want to glue or mount a light and some kind of curtains inside the shell. Anyone know what I could use to mount or glue? Thanks!

Build a light mount. You could just use like 2% tint instead of curtains.

Thanks for the suggestions, The epoxy almost worked, but my shell is black and gets pretty hot, so it eventually fails. And I cant stand tint, I like to know what going on around me.

I hate that crap, Just gets all over and expands everywhere, Only works for certain applications imo.

Liquid nail might work.

Any two part epoxy should get the job done they make it for bonding to fiberglass ect. I have some stuff called G/Flex I believe its called, that will stick to anything. I got it at the boat place here or try a hobby shoppes they have alot of different glues also....
