Subject: [CR] Any tips on installing leather bar wrap?


Before I try learning by trial and error, can anyone please give me any tips on installing laced-on leather wrap? There was an old leather wrap that I removed recently and it appeared that some sort of adhesive was spread on the inside of it (fastack? contact cement?). Is this common? I assume it was put there to prevent twisting of the leather after installation. Thank you in advance for any advice you can provide.
