Inside trim adhesive

Quick question...

What do I use to stick down the ensolite seam trim? I have a few little places that need to be fixed... such as the one in the picture.

Thanks!!

Some folks on this forum have had success with 3m 77 spray adhesive. When I had to reglue my wall covering (not ensolite) after repairing a leak I used contact cement. I think the brush on is easier than the spray and so far it's all stayed in place. I followed the instructions and was very careful as you only get one try with contact cement . Raz

p.s. Watch the fumes

You might want to contact a local or on-line automotive fabric supply house and ask what they suggest for attaching headliners. The commercial stuff I get from J&J Auto Fabrics in Rialto, CA (jjautofabrics.com)was 10X better than the over the counter stuff like 3M spray adhesive.

contact cement

I think contact cement is the way to go, it has a higher heat tolerance than the spray adhesives. I'll try to provide some 3M data sheets regarding this.

The shops that do it for a living, according to J&J Autofabrics, Rialto, CA,
http://www.jjautofabrics.com/
usually use DAP00121 aka DAP-121, Spray Adhesive for headliners and automotive trim work.

When you have to warrantee an upholstery job, about the last thing you want is something to come back with adhesive failures, especially a headliner.

As it's spec sheet indicates, DAP121 is designed specifically for upholstery work, door panels, trim work etc.
http://www.dap.com/docs/tech/00000121.pdf

I've done three glued in headliners in Sunrader motorhomes with this stuff and, at least after about 5 years, I have no reports of any failures.
