Instrument circuit board
#1
Well trying to save a few dollars here. I have a decent condition instrument circuit board. The only thing wrong is near the main connection to the wire harness the copper bands are no longer sticking to the plastic. They are not broken just lost their adhesive. I have read that super glue is non conductive and should work to lay the copper back down. Any thoughts out there on this? Appreciate and advice.

heres on the super glue- It’s not conductive; but can corrode in certain conditions over time.

I asked,so any other options

She said use a Non-conductive epoxy

Radio shack or some other hobby type shops should have epoxy that is suitable for electronics. Or you can order it online.

What about the reproductions from the NPD catalog? I know they are not exactly cheap (around $70), but how is the quality of those?
I have a non-tach cluster and also some delamination on the print circuits.

Well the Board that's getting installed has two 1/2 inch spots where it is not tacked down.As far as a new one CJ Pony wants 100. I have other places to put that 100 right now so I was just looking for a quick fix. I think it will be fine the way it is I just didnt want to take it back out again any time soon. Thanks Again all for the advice
