I have my doubts. beside having to hold lining to metal is could be subjected to heat if you use it for stopping. I wouldn't do it. MHO

On occasion I've used contact cement to hold linings in place for riveting.
Works great........but you'd better git 'er right the first time.

I used Gorilla Glue to attach the linings to the park brake bands on my IH swather this summer. They are used for park and emergency. It worked real good. It's a hydrostatic drive so they don't get the heat you could get in an automotive application. I'd take them to a brake relining outfit and get them bonded. PK

Use the rivets or get 'em bonded professionally. Save you from doing it twice to correct the mistake from the first time.

I've used JB Weld on brake linings, it is good to 500F. Near as I can tell Gorilla glue is good to about 250F.

Use the rivets like factory did. Any bonding will be near impossible to redo later and probably will not perform as well as rivets.

Here are some shots of a set I did a while back....

Keith, so do I. I had to stop working on it but am close to being done. All I need is a free day to get it fine tuned. Maybe another free day to engineer the cutout into my exhaust and hook it all up.

Don't use gorilla glue as it will crumble when it gets around freezing. I found this out the hard way.
