The trouble with contact cement is putting the pieces together in the alignment
you want. The glue grabs immediately on contact. The a 1/4” thick panel
you probably won’t have much of a problem – just leave plenty of excess around
the edges of the skins and trim them after the glue set.

Applying plastic laminate or veneer with contact cement you have to
make sure the glue grabs in a specific sequence so you don’t get big
bubbles. With something stiff like a doorskin I wouldn’t expect the
bubble thing to be a problem.

I’ve used a small paint roller to apply it or a cheap chip-brush. You can
spray it too but it cleanup is a hassle.
