Welcome to the fun house Spinnernut
The only glue I have heard used is Henry's carpet glue. Mad Jack floated his alum. I am sure one of those who used glue will come on and give you more information.

You can probably search "glue" or "glue AND aluminum" If you put caps on the and you get better results.

Enjoy

To float the skin you do not glue it. It is held up by the screws in the trim. You use a couple of screws to hold the aluminum on till the trim is in place.

I tried the search and my computer is moving too slow to even think about looking it up. Find Mad Jacks references or his build photos. Just go to any post with him in it and follow the www road. 8)

I sprayed contact cement to my sides, hatch & aluminum and have had no problems whatsoever. ;) I used Henry's carpet adhesive just on the top piece and noticed a little of it has let loose when I crawl up there to wash the roof. :o Danny

Used the Henry's 663 works like a champ. Been from 100+ to 50's in the same week. No expansion/contraction problems.

Forget troweling it on, I just used a gloved hand and smeared it all over. I then hit it with a trowel to knock down the thick spots.
