I removed all but the front windows in my MC8 last week and used Sikaflex 252 to put up the new steel sides.  It worked great.  The stuff flows like cold molases.  I did put in a few rivets along the bottom for support.  The rivets will be covered by the trim strip I put back on.  One week later and a couple of hundred miles on the bus and it is holding great.  I still have primer on the bus to make sure it held before I had paint put on.  I wire wheeled the frame where I adhered to.  This cleaned the surface and roughed it up to hold the Sika.  No other prep was done.  One thing I noticed tht helped make it flow better was leaving the next tube in the sun while I was working with one.  This heated it up just a little and was much easier on the arms.  Hope this helps.
