    Mines all done with spray glue and contact adhesive along with some hot glue for good measure

    Now i'm no experst when it comes to glueing but i'd say give the MDF a coat of glue, leave it to dry then give it a 2nd coat of glue along with the fabric

    heavy duty spray - do both surfaces and let them go off for a min or two, or evo stick contact adhesive in the tin - paint both surfaces, wait 2 mins and stick - neither should lift then

    they cut the image you wan out of dynamat then cover itwith the fabric and press in to shape.
    The spray glue you need to let go and be tacky then fit the cloth, dont spray the material if your using suede ect as it will seap thourgh.
    With leather and viynal I used time bond from evostick. excellent contact adesive
