DAP does indeed come in a rattle can, CLICK HERE but you got some good advice from Vince. Rattle cans have a different formulation to get the glue to come out of the little hole. There is no aerosol that the glue manufacturers recommend for overhead use on a car roof, and that includes newer cars with headliner boards, but on the floor any contact adhesive will work. I would brush on DAP HHR (high heat resistance)top and trim adhesive before I would use the rattle can. But why brush when you can spray it? You can buy a cheap spray gun at Harbor freight for $17 ( item number 43760) that comes standard with a 2MM nozzle that will spray the DAP fine. That's all I ever use. I just did a headliner in a '53 Chevy that had fiberglass insulation stuck right to the roof that was still going strong after 55 years. It was put up there with HHR contact adhesive.

I agree that jute would be my last choice for carpet padding. I use regular rebonded carpet padding over B-Quiet Ultimate or B-Quiet Extreme. CLICK HERE Watch how thick your padding is, or you can end up with problems with door clearance.
