Yep what he said!

Yep, pro seal. No matter what the problem is, pro seal is your answer.

That said, in times past, I have attached pseudo-CB standoffs and cable-tie attach points with Shoe-Goo and 6000 adhesives successfully.

So far I've been using it on the Clickbond tie wrap anchors. I will monitor how the epoxy will standup after I get this thing built.

DIY bond studs
 
Bob Nuckolls tested several ways of bonding studs to aluminum, including JB Weld and E6000. He also tested several different substitutes for Click Bond studs. Here's a link to his results:

In my case, I decided on E6000 to reattach some failed tie-wrap anchors that a previous builder installed under the baggage floor.
