    I've got an 07 with an ARB, and the fog light lens came off. I have the lens and it's in tact, and I've tried reattaching with epoxy, but it fell off after some time. Would this happen from not letting it cure long enough? Am I doing it wrong?

    Are you letting the epoxy dry in a warm dry environment? Did you clean the surface?

    Yes to cleaning, and yes to a dry area, it was 65* earlier, 50* now, I'm just gonna let this time dry over night, and I got a lot quicker at doing it, so I'm *hoping* it'll be okay.

    Edit: Also found I re-mounted the fog upside down. niceeeee

    I had the same issue with some dust caps on my headlights. I brought the assembly inside and let them dry overnight. They were perfect and ready to go the next morning. Epoxy and sealants take fooorever to dry in cooler weather.

    I'm not ripping that bumper apart again tonight lol, I'll just hope for the best, and if worse comes worst, I'll just get another set of ARB fogs (only like $90 on TRDparts4u???)
