Leather is starting to rip on the battery "door" of my Philco t-805.

Any specific glue works best? or other ideas?

And since I'm at it, any cleaner works best for making leather look like new?

Barge cement with a flexible gauze patch on the inside. Use an opaque leather dye to color the exposed raw lather and the Barge cement gauze patch. The gauze will be the new hinge. If no suitable gauze a new thin leather like from a real chamois will work too.
