Thanks, Hooter, for that info.
How did you use it? Spray, spreader, brush? How did you clamp it whilst drying?

I'm planning to do one myself so any info is useful.

I'm a great fan of Sikabond adhesives. I was always skeptical of spray adhesives but I've had a lot of success with Sikabond's on various trim applications. Brilliant stuff IMO!

spread the glue with a scraper so it was even on the dash then placed the veneer on, grease proof paper and a few sheets of thick mdf for weight so it stayed flat.

Thanks for the info, I will definitely try that.
I used araldite on the xjs (metal backing) after a couple of mishaps using normal spray glue, worked but it was a pain to use.
