{Collins} Re: Replacing an S-line overlay




The original overlays were glued on with Plyo-Bond, contact glue.
Clean both surfaces with acetone...dont get any of this stuff on the
front
panel as the grey paint will absolutely jump off of it.
Apply glue, follow insreuctions on bottle and let dry.
Position overlay over panel precisely as you will get only one chance.
You cant move it after you touch both pieces together.
Put some sort of weight or clamps with wood strips to hold it together
under pressure and let it set up for awhile.
The idea is to get the solvents to evaporate before you join the two
pieces together.
If the solvents are not gone the panel may come up especially if the
overlay was
Not very flat to start with.

Subject: {Collins} Replacing an S-line overlay




I have stripped off the front panel overlay on a 30L-1 and have another 
(used) to reinstall. Any suggestions on how to correctly affix the new 
overlay? What kind of adhesive, etc? Also should the overlay and chassis
be 
cleaned of all old adhesive? If so, what might be the best solvent to
use?
