Better than Bondo?

German firms are beginning to use adhesives to replace rivets, screws and other fasteners. The results seems positive - cars with more rigidity and a lower cost (the bonding technology is cheaper than the metal hardware).

How about repairs

Geez, it's already hard enough to take apart anything inside your car to repair it. I can just imagine if it's all glued together. Just throw it out & buy a new car?

That's a good point. I suppose you could use a hot melt glue in temperate climates so that you could change parts, but it's just not practical in deserts. Also, think how easy it would be to steal parts from someone else's car if hot melt were used.
