Default Gluing Leather to Wood

I have an MDF enclosure that has been built to fit inside of a suitcase. I need to find a way to glue the suitcase to the enclosure though, so that it does not shift around and also to help it retain it's shape (I cut the back off at an angle).

Are there any recommended glues I can use? I have some Loctite 200 Middleweight spray, but not sure if that would hold well enough.

Thanks.

A tablet, a DSP, some amps, speakers and a suitcase

Allow me to be more specific. Everything that I've ever tried has sucked in comparison. And I've tried a lot of different adhesives for upholstery in the last 20 years.

So, which adhesives work better than Landau top Trim for upholstery?

gunna be hard to believe/vague, but theres a local supplier near me that you we order as "5 gallons of the green adhesive". no label on it. much stronger than anything ive ever used, including weldwood

Must be illegal for retail sale.

Chemical industry does amazing shit these days. too bad some of it too dangerous for retail.

I`ve been told that glue that used in surgeries is 1% different from super glue we all can buy in retail.

It seems like most people don't care to actually understand reality.

I'm going to agree with this. It's high heat and strength. I've done some crazy stuff with it.

The best way to dummy proof is to get rid of the dummies
