True.

Well there's something I didn't know.

True, but planes are not put together with epoxy or any other adhesive in a structural capacity (unless they are constructed of composites such as carbon fibre). Rivets are used to fix the skin of a plane to the frame when aluminium is used because aluminium is far more difficult to weld than steel. Regardless of the metal concerned, where strength and reliability is important, the quality control processes associated with welding take too much time and cost too much while at the same time, still not providing sufficient guarantee of a perfect join in an industry where safety is of prime importance. Putting a car together is a far less demanding process.

I would like to get that blue that they put in new cars . could be like liquid nails or liquid bolts or use both.
Recovery points must be on bolts same trailer hitch. But frame that those plates bolt on can be welded sure.
I want to make myself trailer hitch and same make it removable and as recovery point. Saw some great ideas in net , now they procces in my head
