PL3 and metal is generally not a goto as there are better ways for that wood-metal fixin'
iirc, in that'st he onliest way ( yeah- it's not a word but i like it . .)
the metal needs to be given some good tooth and misted with water and then lightly wiped, leave a lay a few molecules thick
and then the pl applied.
someone could test JB weld on wood and metal and get back to us. .
the bolts securing the driver need to be snug but - c'mon, try to be sensible , have some faith in the gasket material
you can test the sealed driver perimeter by running a low sine wave to the driver, maybe 25- 30 ish hz using REW, moderate power
using a piece of 1/4" or 5/16th's tubing
stick one end almost in to your ear
and trace the perimeter/sealed are with the other end
the low freq and driver motion will reveal any seal leakage by the sound of the puffs coming thru the leak thru the tubing up to your ear
that process courtesy of Bill Fitzmaurice as detailed in his really, really thorough fail-safe DIY plans
