    what glue to use attaching new wrapper for bellows

    I'm restoring a Kodak #2 folder with the outer layer of the bellows is shot but the inner liner is good. I'm looking at gluing a new outer layer of rip stop nylon over the inner liner but I don't know which glue/adhesive to use that is available here in Canada. I would prefer not to spend a whole lot on this project. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    http://www.dap.com/product_details.a...=48&SubcatID=8 a quart is around $16 here in the U.S.
    I use this contact cement for a verity of camera repairs including adding a light tight lining to bellows. I apply the cement to the main piece then put the secondary piece in place. When doing bellows I smooth out any air pockets and let them dry for a day or two then refold.
    Advantages- excess will rub off easily if on one surface only once dry. Cleans up with water when wet.
    Disadvantage- you may never be able to get the items separated again after two or three weeks.
