Lurking on this form for a while and came across clschultz79 post on his door build.
I am also using 3/4” 14 gauge sq tubing. I will be skinning them with HDPE plastic sheeting.
I am also using bullet-style weld-on hinges and tractor-style door latches. Please excuse the messy shop.

That would be a hard no. The stuff is like Teflon and nothing sticks to it.

Does glue stick to polyethylene?


Polyethylene has a non-stick surface, which means most types of glue will not form a bond with the plastic. However, there are other ways of forming bonds on Polyethylene surfaces. The two best options for bonding Polyethylene are: Solvent Welding, Ultrasonic Welding or Infrared Welding.
RJ Thank you for the info. I will use screws to attach the HDPE sheeting to the box tubing. You saved me the frustration of finding out it would not work the hard way!!

This stuff here works good for door seal. It's expandable and comforms to different thickness gaps. They make it in different sizes.

Thanks for the info, I bought KX Automotive Universal D-Shape Door Seal 0.47" Height X 0.55" Width Weather Stripping EPDM Rubber Seal Strip Self Adhesive Car Truck Door if this does not work I will get what you recommend.
