    I'm getting ready to spruce up my AR-4X grilles. One of the grills is broken- judging by the thickness of the piece (not very) and the materials (it appears to be masonite, but I could be wrong) I would imagine it happens a lot.

    I kinda wanted to retain as much of the original speaker as possible, but have resigned myself to the possibility I may have to cut new panels. But I want to at least try to salvage them. Has anyone tried this, and can they recommend a decent glue for the purpose? The thoughts off the top of my head are epoxy and gorilla glue.

    What are you trying to glue? Has a corner broken off or something? The masonite isn't very thick. It might be tough to get a good glue bond if you are trying to glue edges together. Any good wood glue should work but you may want to reinforce the joint by overlaying another thin piece of something like very thin plywood. If you want to use epoxy, you could reinforce the joint with fiberglass mat.

    Forget Gorilla glue, it expands as it cures.
