Default Estes Saturn V Wrap

Looking for the lower 1st stage vacu-form plastic wrap for the Estes Saturn V kit 2157. The item number on the instructions is 032853 . I tried a new glue because I couldn't find the stuff I normally used when I have built this kit or worked with similar wraps and it melted the wrap.

Out of curiosity, what glue did you use? That way we know what to avoid!

I saw some Weld Wood contact adhesive spray in Lowes and thought I would try it. Normally I don't use glue on the wraps when I have built one of the Saturn Kits. Over the years I have built 3 Estes , 1 Apogee and the Sirius Saturn V kits. Only fly the Sirius on special occasions. All but the very first Estes kit that I built I have used a 2 sided laminating tape made by 3m. It holds the wraps extremely well. Did not have any left and I remembered I used a spray on that first Estes kit years ago so I thought I would try something else. Big mistake. Christine at Estes is taking care of me thankfully. Lesson learned I ordered another roll of the tape . Expensive but it last me along time as it is only used on rockets with wraps.
