    Ok guys, how the heck do I get the piping to stick on a pair of scratch built boots. TK409 mentions regular super glue, but let me tell you, that is just not working for me. Does anyone one else have some good tips?

    Thanks in advance, Brad

    Goop. No deity in ancient Greek mythology could pull it apart.

    i would recommend some kind of goop or 2 ton epoxy, but I used the 5 pack super glue from Wal-Mart for mine (99 cents). My scratchbuilt boots were a thin suede material ($3 Goodwill!!). It soaked up A LOT of super glue, but in the end it held. I will not lie and say it is permanent because it does pull off
