    Attaching Rubber to ABS ? what to use?

    I need to attatch my Stormtrooper Brow trim to my Bucket.
    The trim I have is real rubber & the helmet is ABS.
    What should I use to do this?

    Hot glue? or two part epoxy?

    I guess you should use ABS glue but i don't know if that will melt the rubber.. try it out on a small peice first.

    Good luck

    I have real rubber trim on my TK bucket and I used double-sided tape. Even when it's been exposed to a hot environment, it hasn't come loose.

    Thanx guys. I used the super glue
    I'll let you know if it holds up in the southern California sun.
