Hello everyone I have a zenith r 7000-2 I just finished up and now am working on the cabinet. On the one side the leather panel is coming off around the edge`s , I am wondering what would be the best way to re attach that ? , I was thinking of using a hot glue gun around the edges . Would that work or is there a better option? thanks again

I would use Weldwood contact cement. You can get a small bottle at Home Depot or Lowe’s. Follow the directions. Work carefully. After It dries, you can clean up any glue that gets on the metal trim. Sometimes it’s easier to remove the entire piece and re-glue it.

Hot glue is too thick and will look lumpy, at least that’s been my experience.
