headliner insulation

I bought some of the insulation that has a foil backing on one side (not the bubble type). Do I put the foil side toward the roof or toward the interior? What kind of adhesive should I use?

Thanks!
Mike

Is the insulation an asphalt based backing? If it is the foil goes to the inside of the car. 3M makes a real good spray adhesive that is ideal for this application. Be warned, it is NOT 3M #77, that stuff will not hold the insulation. I cannot recall the number right now, perhaps someone else can.

Here's a spray that'll do as good or better, for less money:

I'm not sure it it is an asphalt based backing or not. I'll have to check the label when I get home. If I remember right it looks like it has small different colored strings in it.

Sounds like a jute backing, same thing they put on the bottom of car carpet since the 70's or earlier. It works, sounds like you got some good stuff. I am not sure how it is mounted, however.,,,,RR

Yea it looks like jute backing. What kind of adhesive should I use that won't let the insulation fall from heat?

That's 3M 90 adhesive for permanent bond. Comes in a green cans while the 77 temporary stuff comes in a red can. You can get it in a pinch @ Home Depot but I buy the stuff that Horvath linked you to by the case so I don't need to buy the $$$$3M stuff. Great adhesive.
