    I used acetone, and the PU tape rings from DGX. Sealed the edges both sides with aqua seal and it has held up perfect.

    I used MEK for the neck and wrist seals. Had to get rid of a lot of former glue especially on the neck.

    I have a similar project but my suit is a DUI CF200. Are any of these solvents good on neoprene?

    Denatured alcohol took the old cement right off. Fast.
