Best glue for leather to plastic is called "Barge" brand contact cement. It's available from Tandy Leather stores and ocassionally in good hardw are stores.

Brian Baylis La Mesa, CA If you'd like to glue your fingers to your forehead for a few days, Barg e Cement is the correct choice also.

Recently bought a couple of used Avocet women's touring saddles from a l ist member - this has always been my wife's favorite saddle. On the rou gher of the two, the leather has cleaned up nicely with Proofhide, but t he leather is separated from the plastic shell in a couple of places. W hat is the best type of glue for reattaching a leather cover to a plasti c saddle like this? Any little tricks of the procedure I should know?
