The 3M adhesive will not hold in the heat of summer. As soon as it gets hot, the leather will pull away. Go to (your Auto Trim Store) and purchase Weldwood HHR contact cement. This is high temp glue for upholstery. I learned the hard way. Google "Your Auto Trim Store" this is the place to purchase the glue. Buy a gal, You will use it on everything.

3-M super trim adhesive is a high temp contact adhesive and will work for a door panel, but not anything overhead. Just make sure you're not using 3-M 74 or 3-M 77, they will not work at all. There are no aerosols that will work for a headliner, at least their manufacturers don't recommend them for that application. The DAP HHR spray grade would be your best bet.

You need an absolute minimum 1.8MM nozzle, and 2.0 or 2.2MM would be better. Why not go to Harbor Freight, either online or to an actual store, and get part #43760 which is an HVLP external mix siphon feed spray gun which costs $17. It is all set up with a 2.0MM nozzle and will work just fine for you. Also remember to spray at 70 degrees if possible. The glue sprays much better when it's warmer.

I haven't tried it yet but others have suggested the $20 siphon feed that Harbor Freight sells. A search for "contact spray adhesives" returned this quote from DanTwoLAkes:

"The foam bonded to the velour fabric is an open cell polyurethane foam. Your best bet is to use a high temp spray grade contact adhesive like DAP Weldwood top and trim adhesive, 3-M Top and trim adhesive, or Helmitin Helmiprene, even if you have to spray or brush it on for a headliner. There is also a product called K-Grip 202 High Temp. All of those are best if sprayed. If I were you, I would invest in a cheap spray gun from Harbor Freight with at least a 2MM nozzle (They only cost about $20. Part # is 43760-6RBA) and use one of the bulk adhesives.

Do not use 3-M 74 or 77. They are general purpose adhesives and will fail if used on your headliner.

DAP makes an aerosol called Weldwood top and trim spray, and 3-M makes 08090 Super Trim adhesive. There is also a spray called Performance High Temp contact adhesive. All of those are your next best bet, but they are not really recommended for foam backed headliners. Good luck."

My two cents...

I have used 3-M super trim adhesive (80 & 88) for door panels, side panels and anything vertical. Heat doesn't seem to bother it. I agree with Dan that it won't hold on the overhead stuff.
