    Werd. Hot glue rocks for keeping wires in place!

    hot glue is great for many things, but don't use it to mount or assemble your dash or anything heavy, unless you want to see what happens in the middle of the summer with the windows rolled shut in the sun, it does soften up pretty easily..........just because a so called pro uses it to mount stuff doesn't mean that's the best way to do it..........nice truck & install, you look like you have a lot of patience & desire, good luck with it........

    Hot Glue works wonders. I done alot of custom work with LED's....and after I had them wired...I needed somethin good to hold them all down and keep the connections from touching, hot glue did it perfectly!

    hot glue is awsome for wiring work, & is awsome for many things, but I have also seen even professionals mis-use it sometimes where it isn't adiquate, & I just wanted to get the point across that there are somew instances that it is not desirable.............
