I am in the process of installing a fuse and terminal block (FTB) inside the console of my M170.There is a piece of whaleboard near the floor which is 1/2 inch thick. I'd be able to screw my FTB to it using short screws and nothing would protrude from the outside - great, except I feel it's too close to the floor and hence able to get wet and short. The wall of the console is only about 1/4 inch thich on the verticle surface where I would like to mount the FTB. Yes, further up, it's a good 3/4 of an inch, but that is too high to get to in hurry or work on comfortably. My question - if I use a cement type product will there be too much bouncing to maintain the bond of glue and if not which type would you recommend. Epoxy, contact cement, the always mentioned and much praised 5200 or...???....Jim

I'd use 3M 4200 fast set, if you can find a way to hold or brace the FTB tightly to the surface you want to bond to while it sets up. Once set, the FTB will stay there permanently if you want it to, but you'll also be able to remove it should you ever want to.
