Still trying to find the right 3m spray-cement... I want to use it to fix my new fabric to the grilles. Which one would be best suited, any tips?

Progress:

Caulk insides of the Motor Boards, still needs some cleaning.

Putty on the magnets. One spot where putty is still a bit too thick, rest done. I didn´t make life easier for myself by applying it too thick in the first place, this stuff is tough! Lesson learned...

On the back panels i have to put it on here and there a second time, haven´t mastered the technique of applying it in one go without cavities...

Need more sanding paper. Next: Sanding of the naked grill-boards. Sanding of the veneer and trying to get rid of some small dents. I found video that shows how to lessen dents in veneer and if that works i´ll post the link.

The following will be an old hat to our carpenter friends, but it´s a new one to an amateur like me.

Here´s my results from today's try-out:

This is the dent, right in the middle on the front edge...

This is what it looked like after. You soak the spot with a few dabs of water and then use a hot-iron on the dent. As i understand it, the water, which entered the wood, evaporates with enough power to force the dented wood outward, lessening the dent. I had to repeat the procedure a few times.

Maybe I´ll give another try tomorrow and then sand out the rest. I´m positive, this will take care of that.

 

Here´s the link to the video (German only):

A bit of work done today, fixed the putty on the back-panels and worked on the grilles.

This is what the fabric can look like, once cats have had their way...

What to do with the remains of the old glue? Leave it, as base for the new glue, sand it of (might be tough to do...). Who has done this before, input welcome, thanks!

I would leave it as it is and would connect it with the new glue. The old adhesive has now bonded with the mat so that the new coating will hold even better.

I removed the old fabric, i have the new from Crites. I'm thinking to spray the adhesive on the old and then fix the new fabric to it. I also plan to use some black spray-paint to get it dark again.

If fabric spray, go light spray as possible.

A silicone spray is enough to renew the paint, you must spray evenly over the surface, try it first on a corner to see the result.

A bit of progress:

 

My makeshift tool against sanding through the veneer on the front edges:

Veneer was chipped on one cabinet from the beginning ... I caught an edge and tore of some more... Let´ s see what I can glue back in.

But all in all it worked well.
