Glue Choice Dilemma!

Tom Norton

Have a project coming up to make 2 overhead garage doors. I made one in the past which faces northeast so it gets very little sun exposure. These 2 are directly facing west.
The first one I used Titebond 3. But on a few recent posts on Architectural Woodworking they had some failure with TB 3 when the temperature (surface?) Got too high.
I am looking for a suggested adhesive. The core of the door will be polystyrene inside a cedar frame with 1/4" exterior ply glued to it to make my substrate. Then a frame and panel on the exterior.
Thanks for your suggestions!!
