Gorilla glue, but not sure how well it will work now that hot glue is on the vinyl material.

Gorilla glue is what I have used as well. Follow instructions and use alot of clamps to hold it in place while it dries.

Gorilla glue plus a lot of clamps worked for me also. One thing to be prepared for is that the glue expands and you will likely have to clean/scrape some of it off the console. It was a bit tedious but not a difficult job.

I have had excellent results with JB Weld. It has held for many years now. It does take time and lots of clamps have to be used.

I have also heard that Rhino glue works well. Sets up pretty fast. Sold on Amazon.

Want it to LAST, Remove the Foam under padding, wash with some wax/grease remover, then use Gorilla glue Or GOOP.
