I've used acetone straight from the bottle on plastic and cellulose binding, but I far prefer thin CA. I tape it all up, leave 2" spaces between tape, flood in the exposed areas, then go back and take the tape off, flood where the tape was. I put two coats of dewaxed shellac on to protect the bare wood from CA run-off. For tight bends at waist or cutaway I use a tool to press everything tight while the CA sets.
