    I don't see why not. Should provide a strong bond. I've been using goop as a general adhesive so I usually have it on hand. I tried the goop on the magnets and it seems to work well.

    I hope to finish mine this weekend. My 9 year-old loves the magnets, but was panicky when she couldn't separate them -lol.

    I'm really glad for this mod; Chris did it due to his fiber panel ripping out, but the plastic one I have is a worse piece of crap....breaks & cracks with the least of resistance. The fiber panel is much better IMHO. This mod will save my plastic panel from getting destroyed.

    I added foam at the same time as the magnets, and having some fitment issues. the magnets seem to hold fairly well, but I might need a few more.

    When I get a chance, I'll take some pics of the fit. In the meantime, here's a before & after of the upper panel restoration/padding mod:
