Evo-Stick is likely to damage plastic.

This might give guidance http://www.supergluecorp.com/choosingaproduct.html

Try a test with super glue (if you have any) on scrap pcs. Wish I could help more.

Have you tried Gorilla Glue? I have used it to fix the leather strap on a prop sword.

It is like the expanding foam. You might have to scuff up the rubber to give it more tooth for the glue to work with. I would think this glue would be more flexible then the CA type glues.

It is recommended to clamp the 2 parts together as the glue sets. Also the glue expands as it sets so some may ooze out from underneath where you glued.

If you can run a test on some scrap material that would be the safest way to go.

The glue that comes with bicycle puncture repair kits forms a strong bond and shouldn't cause damage to surfaces - worth trying on scrap items.

" Hi tack" sticky PVA glue. Rough your plastic up a bit first , spread a thin covering over your surface , attach leather and voila ! Robert's your Mother's brother.
