    Adhesive repair help

    In taking apart the lid of my center console to replace the latch, I noticed that the vinyl cover was pealing back from where the edge meets the plastic skeleton. It looks like I just need to apply the right adhesive, clamp it down, and wait for it to cure. The problem is the plastic skeleton is very slick and some adhesives eat vinyl and foam.

    I tested some Gorilla dual syringe epoxy on the foam and slick plastic. It worked well on the foam but just flaked off the plastic. Anyone know what I can use to bond the 2 together?

    There's no replacement for displacement.

    The super glue gel worked great. It is not instant like regular super glue but it was cured by morning.
