What glue is good for metal to plastic??

My Bushwacker TrailArmor Rocker Panels are starting to fall off. What glue should I use for it? Super glue did not work. Thanks

I take it these get knackered about quite a bit?

Most adhesives won't give you good structural strength on a join like that. If I really wanted it to stay put, I'd use rivets, coating the shanks with RTV (which will help keep the drilled panel from rusting around the rivet holes.)

Epoxy is a possible, but it isn't very flexible, and will generally fracture under stress when used as an adhesive bond (in my experience.)
