I would be cautious mixing brands of glue, they can have differences in their solvents that can lead to bad results.

This was a mock-up built for the purpose of gaining a contract that has so far realized $195 billion in revenue.
I was chosen to design and build this in a very short time, and that adhesive #*~+ up was the only hitch.

After my experience, I contacted 3M, who’s chemists told me to basically never to mix anything else with their specific adhesive that I was using. So unless you know for certain…

1) state your Country
Suggestions vary A LOT depending on where you are.

2) use solvent based contact cement, the kind you buy in a 4 liter can and apply with a fine toothed spatula/notched trowel.
You can use a medium sized short hard bristle brush to apply it to inside corners , along internal mounting cleats, etc. where trowel is impractical, but immediately after use wet it with solvent.
I keep my brushes inside cylindrical cookie tins with 1 cm or two of solvent at the bottom, metal is best barrier against evaporation, plastic is porous to Toluene/Xylene.

Forget water/"green"/"ecological" type adhesives.

Follow manufacturer´s instructions,including timing, ambient temperature and humidity, ventilated space but avoid drafts and sunlight, etc.

3) it´s a good idea to also buy a small can (250-500 cc) of factory recommended cement solvent to clean tools, spills, etc.

4) I suggest this brand, unless unavailable in your Country,Mother Company is British (EVO STIK):

Thanks for all the input here, it seems I just need to find the faux leather and follow instructions with glue, read read read. I’ll check all those links. Thanks again.
