correct, I used LORD 7542AB adhesive to bond them on. It's available from Chembar.com at about $14/50ml kit, and the dispenser gun is $25 or so. I used one 50ml kit per side to bond the panel on, then I used a third kit split between both sides for bonding the inner wheel-well patch strips to the fiberglass flares.

so it cost about $75-80 with shipping to do the rear quarters as pictured.

well I did a little more today after work. Drilled the heads off the pop-rivets on the driver side rear quarter, and threw on some short-strand infused body filler on, then block sanded down. Going to need another coat or two to get it perfect, but this is a royal pain in the nuts.
