        Yes but that means I wouldn't have It for any jobs that came up
        If it didnt work, there would be little loss
        So time to dig out the Evo stik

          Either a contact adhesive or heavy duty double sided tape.

            I used evostik on my OM1 when this happened in around 1979!

              Camera repairers have a preferred contact adhesive, I've got a can somewhere but can't remember the name of it. Heavy duty double sided tape works well if recovering a camera with different material. Some of my OM bodies are recovered in a silicon anti-slip material.

                Use DIY sticky-stuff and the Warranty won't stick.

                  I had same problem, after one trip out in rain it came off completely so had it fixed under warranty and they also cleaned it. A 7 day turn around.

                    A quick Google shows it's Pliobond.

                          Try copydex apply to both sides let it dry then bring them together, should work.

                            Evostik = contact adhesive, perfect stuff for this and doesn't damage stuff.
                            I get mine from ToolStation which currently has the best price for big tubs ... which is irrelevant in this case.
                            Go to the nearest 50p-shop.

                              Copydex, as 'Wee Man' suggested is a good idea for an initial try. It's a latex emulsion and shouldn't have any effect on the substrate. If it doesn't last, you can rub the old adhesive off with your thumb, leaving the surface clean and undamaged for another try. Cow Gum may also be worth a try, as again it's a rubber base dissolved in a petroleum spirit.
