    Not sure if the title on this is quite right but anyway,

    Ive knocked up a new sill to replace and area that was badly rotten

    Its just loosley screwed in place for now from the top back with stainless screws.

    When i do the final fitting what is the best adhesive to use along the mitred edge and the back edge? (Bearing in mind the back edge has a thin coat of 2 part epoxy filler)

    Should i use a thin coat of the same filler or a decent exteior wood glue to bond the edges?

    Not sure if wood glue will work with surfaces that have been filled.
