We tend to replace the entire shell as I had the same questions about what
glue to use (off-gassing questions and such.) Iıve recently purchase some
strips of foam pads off eBay which come with self-adhesive strips. I
havenıt had the opportunity to use it yet.

As Crazy-glue seems to set very quickly I wouldnıt worry about it seeping
far into the pad (if using just a bit.) I think that I would be more
concerned about what, and how much, it off-gasses while itıs setting. Iım
not sure if those gasses could have a negative affect on closely media.

My 2 cents,
