Rubber heel caps

Rubber heel caps

The next step on these is putting on the rubber heel cap. I’m doing an experiment with the Aquilim 315 contact cement. I know it stays “sticky” longer than regular contact cement but I don’t know how much longer. I’ve put Aquilim on the rubber heel caps and the heels of these boots and now I’m leaving for the night. I want to see if the glue will still bond tomorrow morning.
