Shiny dash revisited

OK I've bought my veneer, several types in fact and will be gluing it up soon. Willies you said to use "yellow" glue to bond the veneer to the dash, any brand? I saw Tribond and a few others and wasn't sure what to get. Also how would you bond to metal surfaces?

Regards
Mark

Jag...not quite sure what you are doing but to glue a wood veneer you need to use a CONTACT CEMENT. Put it on both surfaces and LET IT DRY. Usually about 10-15 minutes. Make sure the pieces are lined up and start at one end and slowly work towards the other. Once the two makes contact they are stuck. You can get contact cement at any hardware store. Not sure of the brand name...maybe Weldwood, but just ask for contact cement. Caution...use in a well ventilated area as it does put off some fumes.

Yellow glue such as titebond brand are wood glues. They do not bond well with plastics. Try a polyurethane adhesive such as Gorilla glue or some type of contact cement as mentioned. Gorilla glue will also bond to metal, yellow glue will not. If you do use a polyurethane adhesive, be careful with squeeze out, the stuff is hard to clean up and can expand under your adhesion surfaces.

Thanks for the info, if your not familiar with a Jag dash it's plywood with a high polished burl veneer over it. Over the years the stock veneer de-bonds from the plywood and begins to crack and peel. I've purchased the replacement veneer already. Willys36 has been very helpful with tips on the previous thread, at the cost of what I'm putting on my dash I wanted to make sure I had all my ducks in a row....
