Hey, on a chromed cat's-eye dash, what is the best glue and what kind to use to glue on the rubber trim that goes around the bottom of the dash...you know what I mean.

TIA

i have used 3M weather strip adhesive for cars, but use it sparingly, apply with a toothpick and tape off areas where you don't want any glue, if done properly it will never let loose.

Factory cat-eye dashes never used a rubber trim, that is an aftermarket invention.

I like the invention. Shotgun pipes and tapered mufflers, and Sportster front ends with disc brakes were also never used, but can be found on my bike. !! :)

Actually, I don't think the cat's eye dash was used on the '37 either...or the tombston tail light which seems to have found it's way onto my 37.
