What's the best adhesive for gluing foam (like the kind in a Pelican Case) to plastic?

A good grade of contact cement - preferably of the sprayable variety?

Murph, use silicone glue or clear silicone caulk. Contact cement will dissolve most foam.

A light application of spray-on contact cement will [i]NOT[/i] dissolve most foam. We do it all the time here at work, with foam foundations in interior trim panels, and foam backed headliner material. Where one runs into trouble is when they attempt to brush a heavy coat of cement on - [i]THAT[/i] will definately dissolve just about any foam.

I think you should use the natural stuff, good old fashion horse glue. I would estimate that it would take two fully grown horses to make enought to glue your gun togeather. Be natural. Be green. Do the right thing and have a few horses killed just so they can be used to make you a bottle of glue.

I'm going with the silicone. The 3M Super 77 did not disolve the foam, HOWEVER, it's too liquid, and was absorbed quickly into the foam ala' osmosis.
