    Anything that stays fairly soft when cured, such as rubber cement. If it cures too hard, epoxy for instance, it will shatter under the pounding.
    What ever you use, be sure to coat the entire kickback (including the plate) with clear urethane. This will help to seal everything in place and protect kickback, panel and balls.

      If you are replacing them with the orig. fibre plates, you don't need anything other than the nails. Ever tried to replace one that has been glued and nailed? LOL:-{
      AMF plastic probably won't stay perfectly flat as adhesives don't like to stick to it.
      Phenolic not only need 2 coats of contact cement on the plate and one on the wood, but will also need some screws countersunk in the corners and middle top and bottom.
      AS the wood gets smashed around the old plate, there may be gaps around the edges that adhesives don't like.
      Also, be prepared to replace wood with wood under them when removed. nothing is better than the maple behind the plate to transfer the impact back to the pins. For the same reason, the phenolic will transfer the impact better that fibre or plastic.
