Good adhesive to reapply leatherette?

I was given an old K1000 and the leatherette is peeling a bit. What is a good adhesive to re apply it?
Also, the rubber grip on the focus ring of the M 50/2 that came with the cameraa is loose. What would be a good adhesive for that?

Thanks in advance,

There is a product called Pliobond that is the general solution to both. It is available from micro-tools.com and at some hardware stores.

Pliobond is best. It holds very well yet covering can be removed intact if necessary in future.

Those are pretty sweet. If I was gonna do that I would rather do it to my K2 or SP-F.
The leatherette on the K1000 is in quite good shape, just coming of at the corners.
