    What type of glue should I use? Is Titebond okay? Any tips to do the job just right? Thanks!

    Hard to go wrong with super glue. Are they mother of pearl or plastic? Not that it matters...I'm just curious.

    +1 Super glue. Just a tiny dab right in the center of the hole for it should do.

    Okay thanks, guys! I'm pretty sure the inlays are plastic. 2002 R8.

    Had this happen to a R7 wraptail. One drop, good to go.
