Any one used 'No Nails'? 

I want to sick some wood onto fibre glass plastic. The fibre glass in only thin, too thin to attach anything that needs screw fitment. I have used screws and they become holes when the screw is inserted. Anything needing to be attached becomes a wobble. Not happy.

If the wood is able to become solid, then I can insert screws.

Have you thought about Gorilla glue?  It has a good reputation for firmly gluing dissimilar materials.  It works by applying the glue to one surface and then wetting the other one prior to joining the two together.

Tiger Seal from any motor factor.
Available in black or white.
If it holds body panels, spoilers and the like on vehicles doing over100mph.
It will stick what you need Ross. 👍

No Nails sets solid whereas this stuff always has a little flex so tends to remain stuck and not crack away.

But also...if you are only wishing to secure something by screwing screws through the thin sheet, why not just use the Gorilla Glue by itself and not bother with the wood baton? These 'No More Nails' and 'Gorilla Glue' type bonders dry quite stiff and hard, good enough to take a self-tapper.

Just put a big 'blob' at each point on the reverse side, everywhere you need to have a screw go through the plastic sheet.

Brilliant stuff Ross, check the tube for what it can do, ring the company if not sure, their tech support is great, I needed to secure some Rosemary tiles to battens on a vertical surface where they couldn't be screwed, big dollops was suggested, and they're still up there despite being in a high wind area.
