Trunk Carpet Adhesive
« on: December 04, 2019, 12:05:26 PM »
I'm going to be building a custom trunk enclosure to finish the trunk interior.  When it comes to gluing the trunk carpet to the panels I make whats the best\strongest product.  I'm guessing some sort of Heavy Duty spray adhesive\contact glue... there are just so many options.... 3M, Permatex, etc.    I will have a couple of 90-deg panels the carpet will wrap around and I don't want it to start lifting after a couple of months.

Thanks everyone!

I am a woodworker by trade so I tend to use products I am familiar with. A good contact cement should do the job. I use a brand called Hybond, but not sure its readily available to the general public ( I get mine from a counter top supply company). The stuff from Home Depot is good too, I can picture the label in my head but not sure of the brand, it may be DAP. For me I would brush or roll it on. Make sure both sides are good and dry and that you stick them where you want them. Once in place they will not come apart. I used the 3m stuff for my headliner and it has held up good for a few years now. Again, not sure of the exact product no. on that either but I can check in the shop later

Weldwood by dap is a popular contact cement.  Not sure if that's the one you're thinking of.
