I learned the hard way that hot-glue inside boxes that sit on the dash 
of my car in Florida is not a good idea.  The glue ends up in a puddle 
on the bottom (or outside) of the box and whatever it was supposed to be 
holding on the inside falls down.  In my case, it shorted a + to - lead 
on the 12v supply, melted the wires, and left a nice little smoke stain 
on the windshield before the fuse blew thankfully preventing further 
damage (like the car bursting into flames).
