Glue for wood trim

What kind of glue should I use to put the wood trim on the dash? looks like they used some-kind of double sided tape.

3M makes a double sided tape for trim and moulding. Works great, inside or out.

Had the same thing with my wood trim. I used Gorilla glue, it's stuck for 4 months so far and will probably stay well into the future. Rigging something to hold the side pieces in place was kind of a pain, though. I used some sticks and put a rag over the trim pieces.

I second the double sided tape. I got the kind that's thicker than normal tape, kind of padded. Works great.

I use black RTV silicone. Works great and the piece can be removed without damage if necc. later. If the wood is warped, just use duct tape vertically until it sets over night.

By the way, you need to scrape away at least some of the deteriorated foam before re-gluing.

I used gorilla glue also. Worked perfect, still holding on a year later.

I first used double sided tape. It did not hold up. Hot summer days did it in. I used some kind of contact cement about six weeks ago and it is holding fine. (Weldwood??--in the glass bottle)

I used Epoxy and clamped it in place to set. Worked great.

Gorilla Glue gets my vote, too. I use it for woodworking and many other things around the house. Mistress Heather swears by it.

I have had good success with 3M contact cement, the kind you paste on with a small brush. Put it on both the wood and the metal strip, allow the glue to set up, then press the two together and clamp. Bond is immediate but I allow 24 hours before I re-install. (Probably overkill.)
