    I would suggest a thin coat of contact adhesive. I'm assuming the non leather skin is vinyl or pleather?

    A glue typically used for this is contact cement (a rubber solution used on both surfaces and let dry to some extent before pressing surfaces for a moment).

    Pliobond brand is often cited in repair manuals.

    I've been using Aleene's Original Tacky Glue. It's water soluble, but it seems to hold up well.

    Last year I glued some leatherette on a Hasselblad with Pliobond already mentioned here. It is holding well, used the camera in winter at temperatures of -20C. Do not hesitate to use Pliobond.

    The rubber cement they use seems to always come off. I was thinking epoxy? Anyone try it?

    The advantage to using contact cements is that the process is reversible by using a solvent. An epoxy AFAIK must be removed mechanically. Heat will soften it but probably not to good for a camera.

    Why are there no speaker jacks on a stereo camera?
