lakecat Posted February 20, 2017 Report Share Posted February 20, 2017 I have the AR3's that I have refinished but when I got them there wasn't any grills. I made up some grills with 3/16" Masonite and added 1/8" paint sticks to this Masonite cut to size for top and sides so the 1/4" staple would not come thru the front when applying the grill material. I found out that after applying the grill material, the grills were very difficult to install and was just a tad too thick to slide into slots easily. So I spent a lot of time carefully removing ALL the staples to save the hard to get matching 3's material....and pitching the Masonite grills. I found a pair of OEM plastic grills for the 3's and got them. I don't want to staple the material to this plastic so looking at contact or sticky glues that I could use for this plastic. I noticed that a lot of material on these AR3 grills were not fastened on sides but I want to. I cut thin pieces of wood paint sticks and glued them into the slots on sides of grills to give a flat spot on sides for the glue. Now....I am looking for a decent glue that would work for plastic and grill material to adhere together. I have some spray contact cement that I use for other projects but wonder if that would work long term. I am picturing a tacky glue but have not found anything. Any suggestions?
