    Exclamation Riseman "Sensor" sticker came off, super glue doesn't work with metal plate

    A while ago I made a custom Riseman with a red bezel and metallic white "sensor" sticker, I used super glue to hold the sensor sticker in place.

    But today when I tried to clean the sticker with an adhesive cotton-stick, the sticker came off, it turned out that once the glue is dried, it will slowly leave the polished metal surface without you being aware of

    So I removed the sticker from the old bezel by pressing from the sizes, the sticker popped out without problem, I cleaned the dried glue on the bezel with acetone and put the old sticker in.

    Casio used a double sided tape on the original sticker, I'm amazed to see the small piece of adhesive that survived almost three years while being exposed to heat or submerged in water without losing its capacity. The only similar product I could guess is the thermal tape used to fix the metal radiator on computer chips, I've found it in decade old computers where temperature is like on Sahara desert and I've had to use tremendous force to remove them by hand.

    I like it better with black writing, if that's of any help

    Seems like standard superglue won't do the job properly, you need something stronger?

    It's nothing wrong with the black decal, I just want it a bit different from others, but I think I will leave it as is for a while.

    I also vote for black; you can't read it if white.

    I'll say it again: use contact adhesive

    Yes, but which one ? :P

    I've looked at 3M, but they are either too thick or too thin, and not water-proof.

    There are some bath room tape, they are water-proof but they are thick like hell.

    Why would you dye a limited Orange Riseman (G-9200R) to red, you do realise the Orange ones are as rare as rocking horse ...., I know because I have one, I lost my sticker also so I had to dye a whole bezel and remove it I secured it to my Orange one with contact adhesive.
