Hi!
What's the best glue to use on HGW's textile seat belts?

TIA
Stein

I just use CA gel to be honest. Just use as small an amount as possible, but they handle it well and stick together nicely if you're careful.

I was using thin CCA and it wasn't working very well

I've used Gator's Grip glue for putting these belts together.  Worked very well for me.

What Ben said. I clamp the glued portions in a set of locking tweezers until it's nearly dry.

I love the HGW belts. I've tried the RB ones, liked them alt too, but HGW is just more available to me.
I only wish they printed both sides like the RB versions. :(

PVA glue is certainly the best glue for this kind of job (textile or paper belts). I use the Pacer formula 560, but any other kind of white glue should work nicely. You just have to apply a small drop, you press the belt for a few seconds, clean the excess and it's done. And the belt remains more flexible than with CA.

But i still use CA to glue the belts on the seat.

Following the big Photobucket rip-off attempt, all my pictures on the forum cannot display anymore. I try to reupload the RFI pictures, but i'm not sure i'd have enough time and energy to reupload the pictures of the WIP threads. If you're interested in a specific subject and want me to reupload some pictures, just let me know. :)

I used Krystal clear the other day. Works well.

 

Clunk, I just found 5 sets of RB Luftwaffe belts. You need a set?

 

I was about to order more when I happened to open the correct 109 box. :)

The humble tambourine can be traced back over 5000 years. Now it is perhaps the most recorded instrument.

Check it out, during Roman games, there were always bands playing. A tambourine being involved.

What a gig! :)

I actually use the very thin CA since I can use just at tiny bit applied with a pin to lock down the seatbelt and the buckle if I need to or to attach the pad to the back of the buckle.  I use thicker CA for attaching the PE to the seat or frame unless the attachment point is very noticeable, then I go back to the very thin CA and the pin.

 

Have not used the water based/canopy glue before but will try it now...

I have, too. But 560 is very forgiving and it works fast and stays put.
