You need the right glue for the right application. Most car interior applications need a bulk (in containers of a gallon or larger), spray grade (shot from a spray gun, not an aerosol), HHR (high heat resistant), top and trim contact adhesive like DAP or 3-M. There are very few aerosols that will handle high heat, and most glues won't work well gluing vinyl to wood. I'm not sure I understand what you're trying to do, but I would try to staple the vinyl to the wood before I'd try to glue it to the wood. Look at this Wiki article if you still decide to glue the vinyl on:

kso, you are wrong with most of what you posted. "uneven application" of the glue will not show through vinyl even if you apply it with a brush, and DAP and 3-M are the standards of the industry for interior work. "normal stores"? You don't find this contact adhesive in home improvement stores, you find it in places that cater to people who do upholstery work. Like this place:

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
