Thanks for the help...I picked up a quart of glue/contact cement that can either be sprayed with a gun or brushed on wth brush...Will brushing this on hold just as good as a spray gun??

thanks for the help man ;)

there was one good aerosol glue that i used before. held almost as good as the stuff we used in the spray guns...its comes in a white can with blue lettering on it...very basic looking nothing fancy...its got a simple ass name but i just cant think of it...."name started with a J i think, like jeffco or something co" 3m works if your just doing simple shit but something like that has weight to it...just buy a 20$ spray gun and go to an upholstery shop and try to buy some of their glue..thats what i do now

never heard of instabond....this stuff was named real simple....and it was really cheap to...about 2$ a can...think it just said high strength spray adhesive on it...i think the biggest reason it was strong is because it didnt spray out all fucked up like 3m spray adhesive...it actually spread more like a spray gun....nothing is better than that stuff in the 5 gallon buckets though...but you better hope you stick it just right because it isnt coming loose once you do it :roflmao: :roflmao: :roflmao:

there's several glues you can use

camie has a #300 and #303

k-grip #701

3m #90

3m #1099


if the headliner is

cloth - 3m #90

if its vinyl - 3m #1099

these two 3m #'s are both high temp adhesives which is what you want.

hope this helps :),
