I'm adding some cab details to my Williams Santa Fe Blue Goose.  I know, I know it's a 4-8-4 "J" not a 4-6-4 Hudson like the real "Goose"  but I loved the paint scheme when I saw it years ago and the pre-owned price tag on it really fit the budget.  I'm going to slide in a Lionel "J" backhead to hide the motor and flywheel, and I thought I'd ask about the color of the cab interior over on the Real Trains forum.  Well Tom, Number 90, really came through, Santa Fe steam cab interiors were painted Acme green after the strip wood lining was installed.  So before installing the backhead I planned on painting the interior a dark green.  While looking through my of my shoe boxes of supplies I came across several thin sheets of cedar that came out some cigar boxes.  Somewhere along the way I had painted one of these sheets green.  The light bulb that went off over my head was blinding.  Use the green cedar sheet to line the cab just like the real deal.  So now for the reason for this topic.  What would be the best adhesive to attach this wood veneer to the die cast cab?  I've checked the This To That listing in Scenery and Structures and it recommends metal epoxies, and Le Page Contact cements.  Does anyone have any experience attaching wood to diecast?
